Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal’s wife Sunita Kejriwal has been shifted from Serious Fraud Investigation Office to her parent cadre Central Board for Direct Taxes.
She has to join her parent cadre by Tuesday.
The transfer implicates likelihood of Kejriwal’s wife, an IRS officer, being shifted to anyplace in the country, and in that case, she may lose her administration accommodation in Koshambi near Ghaziabad.
A senior CBDT representative said on condition of secrecy that usually an officer in IRS manage to reside in NCR for a longer period by working as OSD in Commissioner’s offices, but in Sunita’s case this seems to be tricky, owing to her hubby’s involvement with Team Anna.
The CBDT representative however stated that the section was within its rights to shift its functionaries and there was nothing unbalanced regarding it.
Sunita Kejriwal had applied for one year ‘child care leave’. In its place, she was suddenly ordered to go back to her parent cadre.
The condition was different a few months back when the Department of Company Affairs had written to CBDT to allow Sunita stay in SFIO for around a year owing to paucity of IRS officers.
In the meantime, the time limit for Arvind Kejriwal to shell out Rs 9.5 lakhs to the IT dept is expiring on Tuesday (Nov 1).
