[ZESTCaste] Centre appeals against I-T relief given to Mayawati

Centre appeals against I-T relief given to Mayawati

New Delhi, July 1 (PTI) The Union government has moved an I-T tribunal
challenging the relief given to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati
by an adjudicating body in cases relating to her sources of income and
origin of donations during 2001-03.

The Income Tax Department filed two appeals on June 25 in the Income
Tax Appellate Tribunal to contest the orders by I-T Commissioner,
Appeals, (CIT-A) giving relief to the UP chief minister against any
adverse assessment for years 2001-2002 and 2002-2003, finance ministry
sources told PTI.

Mayawati had declared in her tax returns that she had received gifts
from her political mentor Kanshi Ram's sisters --Gurcharan Kaur,
Kulwant Kaur and Swarn Kaur. I-T officials have countered this claim
by saying that they had "no capacity and creditworthiness" to hand
over gifts to Mayawati, and that the CIT-A had ignored this point.
