‘Madhya Pradesh chief minister’s wife gave wrong PAN’April 12th, 2008 - 7:39 pm ICT by admin
Bhopal, April 12 (IANS) The opposition in Madhya Pradesh has demanded that a criminal case be filed against wife of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan for allegedly giving a wrong Personal Account Number (PAN) while filing her tax returns. On Saturday, Leader of Opposition Jamuna Devi and a few Congress party leaders went to TT Nagar police station in the state capital here and demanded a case of fraud be registered against Sadhna Singh for misleading the income tax (IT) department and added that the department has also slapped a penalty of Rs.10,000 on her.
“Income tax authorities had issued a notice to Sadhna Singh under section 272 B of the Income Tax Act,” she told reporters outside the police station. When asked about the source of her information, Devi said she got the information through a newspaper report.
The IT department, however, refused to comment on the issue, saying: “We normally come across many such cases where the error in PAN are found. It is not a big issue”.
