Income tax department is conducting a raid at residence of Noida’s Chief Development Officer Makhan Lal Gupta.
Income tax officials reached Makhan Lal Gupta’s Sector 52 E block residence on late Thursday evening. Income tax department is conducting the raid to check for disproportionate assets.
Makhan Lal Gupta was transferred to Noida in September 2014. Before that he was the CDO of Sitapur district.
Considered to be a forthright person he was highly appreciated during his Sitapur posting for being only CDO in nearby six district who would easily accept RTI applications and would also give receipts for the same.
His Noida tenure has also been quite uneventful. The CDO was also in charge of personnel on election duty during 2017 assembly polls.
More details awaited.
