Supreme Court Rejects Petition Against Mandatory Retirement of Indian Revenue Service

The Supreme Court rejected the petition filed by a former IRS officer against mandatory retirement . A bench of Justices Dhananjay Y Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee agreed with the Centre’s plea that the petitioner Ashok Aggarwal should approach Central Administrative Tribunal(CAT).

The apex court directed that if the petitioner takes the matter before CAT, it will dispose of it as soon as possible and within four months from the date of filing the petition. The government last year mandatorily retired some senior officials of the Indian Revenue Service (Income Tax) in the wake of allegations of corruption, professional misconduct and extortion.
