Not Just an Accountant – By ex-CAG Vinod Rai

Finished reading an Excellent book – Not Just an Accountant – By ex-CAG Vinod Rai. Recommended for everyone.. A sample paragraph – Pg 28 – “For a short while, I was also in charge of the sales tax and excise commissioner’s post. It was during that I came to understand the distinction between a corrupt officer and honest one. According to the excise officer yardstick, an honest office is one who quietly accept hos share of the payouts (hafta) as is apportioned by the assignment he holds. The apportionment norms are well delineated in the hierarchy. As against this, the dishonest officer is one who, after accepting his apportioned share , is dissatisfied and goes forth to extract more from the party. A rather unique definition, but I guess each department comes with its own ideology”
