Allegations against Tolani ITAT Member and Addl. CIT Verma
K.C.Moondra filed an complaint to Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) against Mr. R.A.Verma, Additional Commissioner Of Income-tax, D/R, ITAT, Jaipur and Mr. R.P.Tolani, Member of Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT) at Ahmedabad with allegations of Harassment and wastage of time and money. Copies of this complaint was also sent to the Secretary, Ministry Of Law & Justice, Chairman , Central Board Of Direct Taxes, New Delhi and Principal Chief Commissioner of Income-tax.
Moondra alleged that Even after about 15 months of the application (Rectification Application / MA), Mr. Tolani is trying his best that the Misc. Application No. 36/JP/15 should not be heard and concluded by ITAT Jaipur Bench and therefore, he is also trying by making a conspiracy with Mr. Verma, Addl. CIT, D/R, ITAT Jaipur. As heard, this 15 months old M.A. (Rectification Application) is an oldest pending application in the history of ITAT.
As per the conspiracy, Mr. R.P. Tolani managed / conspired his one week tour from Ahmedabad to Jaipur for the hearing of the MA on 01.07.2016 and hearing on 01.07.2016 was adjourned by Mr. Tolani forcefully just in the name of D/R whereas no adjournment application was filed by the D/R but D/R Verma supported silently use of his name for adjournment which proves that Mr. Verma also joined the conspiracy with Mr. Tolani.
In the latest last hearing on 07.10.2016 at the last moment, Mr. R.A.Verma orally requested for adjournment as he could not prepare the case as he did not receive file of the case from his colleague or assistant and he succeeded in getting the adjournment as part of conspiracy with Mr. Tolani. It is clear from the following chart that in all the last 3 hearings, Mr. Verma was continuously D/R and he never sought for adjournment. In such circumstances what preparation remained in 4th hearing and that too in M.A. where it is application against the mistakes incurred by the members of ITAT. There is almost no scope for D/R to argue but by taking the benefit of system, he also tried his best to avoid and prolong the hearing just to harass the appellant and his CA (A/R) as part of conspiracy.
