It is true that following the completion of the Eastern Western corridor in 2018 commercial vehicles that traversed Delhi to travel to other states have not come in and consequently Delhi’s tax collection has decreased by 70 percent,” claimed Kapoor.

He claimed that because of this, the tax collection company, which had signed an annual contract worth 1260 crore, was able to sustain huge loss in collections.

The contractor paid a portion of the MCD and then resigned from work.After the contractor resigned the MCD forfeited his security deposit, and the company launched legal proceedings for recovery, according to Kapoor.

At present, the tax collection firm is paying the correct amount over the last two years, he said.

The BJP spokesperson said that the Arvind Kejriwal government is embarrassed politically and irritated by the revelation of the Excise department fraud and is doing its best to distract the public from the issue.

Making accusations against the MCD is a part of the scheme to distract attention from the MCD, he said.

In the earlier hours in the daytime, Sisodia had written to Lieutenant Governor V.K.Saxena and demanded an CBI investigation into the alleged tax fraud of $6,000 in the MCD.

“Drawing your attention to an enormous corruption in Delhi’s municipal corporation, I would like to ask the CBI to investigate the matter and take a firm stance against those who are involved in corruption.This corruption has resulted in losses of about $6,000 crore,” Sisodia said.
