The income-tax department has issued a ~30-crore notice to the Aam Aadmi party (AAP) for allegedly violating norms on collecting donations, including “hawala entries” worth ~2 crore.
The order for tax assessment issued on November 23 sought the party’s explanation by December 7, saying it “incorrectly disclosed hawala money as voluntary donations”. The AAP said the order was “bogus” and accused the “people who run the country” of muzzling the voice of Delhi’s ruling party. The reference was to the BJP government at the Centre, with whom the AAP has a running dispute over administrative control of Delhi.
The I-T department declared all donations to the AAP in 2014-2015 as illegal, revoking tax exemptions given to it as a party.

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Monday asked why can’t Delhi Metro provided free basic services like Drinking water and sanitation to travellers at the metro stations.
When the DMRC’s counsel submitted that they were giving water at the stations at a nominal charge of rs. 1 per glass and also adding better services each day, the court rapped the corporation saying it was behaving like this at it had no competition.
“What services you are giving ? where there is no competition, there is no service. If you get a competitor, you will give all the facilities. Why are you charging even rs, 1 ? you should give drinking water for free,” Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva said.
The court was hearing a plea filed by Kush Kalra, a commuter, complaining that Delhi Metro does not provide toilets, drinking water and dustbin facilities at any of the stations here.
During the hearing, advocate Kush sharma, appearing for the petitioner, argued that Delhi Metro Rail Corporation(DMRC) was charging rs. 1 per glass of water, whereas it should be provided free.
The DMRC was even charging commuters for using toilets and had removed dustbins from the stations, he said.
Earlier, the court had directed DMRC to indicate on affidavit how many toilet and drinking water facilities were available at metro stations and whether the amenities were generally accessible to commuters. It had said it has provided toilet facility for commuters at 138 metro stations but there are 11 metro stations where there are no such facilities due to lack of space.
