Suspicious IT official demanding a raid on your establishment? Call these numbers

Covai Post Network

Coimbatore : The Income Tax department has released a statement wherein they have stated that business establishments and individuals should check for ID cards in case anyone claiming to be from the IT department comes seeking to search.

The release said that in case there is any suspicion about the person seeking to search or raid the premises, they can immediately contact the Joint Commissioner (Admin) of IT at 94459 53054 or the Public Relations Officer at 94459 53264.

The person who calls himself an officer of the department should be able to produce the Department ID card and also introduce himself before conducting any raid, the release added.

It may be recalled that a man claiming to be from the IT department had fraudulently entered into the residence of J Deepa, the niece of former CM Jayalalithaa, in a bid to “strike a deal” with her. When suspicion arose and police were called for, the man jumped the compound wall and fled.
