App to check poll expenditure-related violations in Punjab
With the objective to check misuse of money in the high-stake Punjab Assembly polls, the Income Tax department has developed a mobile application which allows public to alert tax sleuths about any violation related to election expenditure by any candidate.
The 'Election Eye' app will be the first-of-its-kind which will be put to use in Punjab Assembly polls, a senior income tax official said.
"This app will allow public to click photograph of any election expenditure-related violation like posters, banners, hoarding anywhere in the state and they can send it to us. "The app will automatically locate the sender and then a team of tax sleuths will be sent to the spot to check violations," the official said.
