I think it needs to be exposed. This contract is probably not to Laloo's CattleFeed and Software Pvt Ltd, but to one of the Big IT Companies of India. Their biss-boor quality and sheer criminality is on display for all taxpayers to experience, and it should be exposed. I would like to hear the explanation from the Big Billionaires on how this pathetic implementation continues year after year, under their "leadership".
Yes, I agree with the thing you say above, it is exactly the reasoning adopted by criminal to decide their behavior. It is based on the assurance that if their conduct is detected there will be absolutely no risk of punishment. So the only way to expose it is for taxpayers to be alerted.
Note that employees of the companies that did NOT win the govt contract, also know this very well if they have any competence at all, and are honest enough to fill tax forms. So why have THEY not complained to the govt? All it takes is a tweet, hain?
The trouble as you know, is that this is the same scam as (used to?) operate in Indian Customs. Even for harassed air passengers forced to come there to pick up delayed baggage, eating 2 days from scan vacations to travel back to the airport, they make their forms so terrible, by having several inconsistent questions there. Then some Babu makes a few gross errors. Then they harass customers and ask: "WHYfor u r not yoojing an AGINT to do this?" (Because if u use an agint who hangs around there, their backdoor baksheesh scheme cuts in). I am not saying the specific Income Tax ppl are crooks here, but their Big Baboon are certainly not paying attention to complaints if this continues every year. The Customer Service ppl are very aware: last year they called and asked me "Which version of Java r u using?" It took me a while to realize that they were not asking if I had the latest, but to go back and load the old version! He also said: "The accountants are able to run this with no problem!"
Someone else said:
We keep one computer in the office that has the oldest software, and we never update it. That is the only way to fill in Govt. Tenders and other forms.
"Indian Quality, 2019". Oh yeah, v r having Artifical Intelligence onlee! Don't you see, these sort of sh1ts hurt us all?
Note that the govt is trying VERY hard to serve people: What other nation provides such sophisticated tax-filing software FREE? It's India's vaunted IT companies that are the sh1ts, sorry if I offend the numerous honest workers thereof that frequent BRF. Maybe you should slide this under the door of your crooked bosses with a middle finger salute sketched in?
Why do you think they will be any more honest in medical, military or other life-critical apps? Those are also sarkari contracts onlee, hain?
