New Delhi, 26 Aug, 2019: The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) said on Monday it has sacked 22 senior officers following an investigation into charges of corruption against them. The move is in connection with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Independence Day address in which he exhorted that his government will compulsorily send off the officers of the rank of superintendent/AO under Fundamental Rule 56 (J) in public interest due to corruption and other charges besides traps laid by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
