LS Polls: IT Dept sets up 24X7 Control Room and toll-free mobile number to check illegal movement of cash in Delhi

New Delhi: The Directorate of Income Tax (Investigation), Delhi has opened a 24X7 Control Room at the Civic Centre to keep a vigil on the movement of unaccounted cash, bullion and other valuables, suspected to be used for electoral purposes, during the Model Code of Conduct in the national capital.

The measure has been taken by the Directorate of Income Tax (Investigation), Delhi under its commitment to assist the Election Commission of India in curbing the role of black money in elections, the Ministry of Finance said in a communique.

This is one of the several measures taken by the directorate to encourage the residents to contribute to the process of ensuring clean and fair General Elections to Lok Sabha, 2024.

The Directorate has issued a Toll-free Number where any person can communicate with and give any information to the Income Tax Department regarding “suspicious movement/distribution of cash, bullion & other valuables etc within the NCT of Delhi, in connection with the General Elections to Lok Sabha, 2024.”

According to the communique, the address and toll-free number are: Room No. 17, Ground Floor, C- Block, Civic Centre, New Delhi-110002 Toll Free Number: 1800112300. Landline Numbers: 011-23232312/31/67/76 Toll-free Mob. Number: 9868168682.

“Residents can contact the Toll-Free Number, and callers to the Control Room need not disclose any personal details, such as name or other details of identity. What is vital is that the information received is credible and actionable,” it added.

The Control Room will be functional during the entire period of the Model Code of Conduct in Delhi—from the date of the announcement of General Elections 2024, until the same is over in Delhi.

“In the spirit of free and fair elections, the citizens are requested to extend their help by sharing relevant information with the Directorate on the above-mentioned numbers, in respect of NCT of Delhi,” the ministry said.

The identity of the informant will be kept secret, it added.
