Perspectives from ISB

To commemorate ‘National Civil Services Day’, the Office of External Relations at ISB organised a series of luncheon meetings with civil servants who interacted with the ISB community. As part of these luncheon engagements, I got a chance to interact with Agam Singh Bedi, IRS, who serves as the Deputy Director of Income Tax (Investigation), Mohali. He is a 2018-batch revenue service officer with and holds keen interest in sports, especially cricket.

Through this candid conversation, we delved into the role of formulation and effective implementation of direct tax policy and handling policy matters. On being asked how the officers identify and deal with the tax evaders, he shared that the technological tools aid the expert teams in recognising fraudsters. He highlighted the relevance and procedure of investigative searches and the role of money trails, paper trails and other methods in acquiring information.

It was intriguing for a young professional like me to interact with a fellow engineer who not only cracked the toughest exam in the country but went on to bag a gold medal in direct taxes during his training at the National Academy of Direct Taxes. His humility and insightful wit made the whole interaction enriching.

In the run-up to the Civil Services Day on April 21, the Office of External Relations organised a series of interactive lunch meetings where civil servants shared their journey and accomplishments with the ISB community.
