In a new case of disproportionate assets investigation, an assistant engineer of Noida Authority was suspended after assets worth more than Rs. 200 crore were revealed in an Income Tax Raid. Not only that, but the raid also revealed that the assistant project engineer, Brijpal Singh owns 25 properties, five SUVs and has two families in Noida and Faridabad.

Amrinder Kumar, principal director, income tax department’s investigation wing (Kanpur), told the Times Of India, “We have found 25 properties in Noida, Faridabad, Modinagar, Pilakhua, etc. He owned five SUVs, including a Jaguar, Mercedez Benz, Toyota Fortuner, Hyundai Creta, etc. all having VIP numbers ending in 6666.”

Among his many possessions, Singh also owns Moti Mahal hotel in Noida Sector-63, Rama banquet hall in Noida’s Bhangel and a private school in Delhi. Additionally, he has a number of bank accounts in at least five banks.

The IT sleuths also discovered that he had two wives and six children. Moreover, both sets of children have the same names to carry out transactions without coming under the radar of investigating agencies.

Soon after the raid, the Noida Authority suspended Brijpal Singh who had joined the government services as a junior engineer in 1981. The daily also reported that in his career spanning around 38 years, he was promoted once. He is set to retire in December in 2018. Reportedly, Singh was also a member of Noida Employees Association in the early 90’s and has been known to have a stronghold on economic and political networks.



The Logical Indian Take

Brijpal Singh has a salary of Rs. 65,000 a month. However, the recent IT raids reveal the extent of corruption and show exactly how far has the problem seeped in. The case of Brijpal Singh bears a striking resemblance to that of Yadav Singh, Noida’s former engineer-in-chief, who had amassed disproportionate assets of around Rs. 950 crores.

Corruption plagues the Indian economy and people like Singh only reinforce the fact that both the government and the citizens need to be responsible and work in tandem to curb corruption from the roots.
