Operational Vehicles : Used for which operation ?

One of our viewers asked this question of course with a request of anonymity.
Let’s have a quick look about the scheme and actual use of operational vehicles in Income Tax Department, perhaps the same in every other central department.
Operational vehicles have been introduced in this department for smooth departmental operation. Instead of buying new cars and bearing responsibility of recruiting staff car drivers, hired cars without any recurring liability had been preferred by Govt. Each vehicle is being taken on rent at the cost of Rs 40,000/- plus service tax as applicable (including the cost of driver). Each and every CIT charge is allotted 2 to 4 operational vehicles. The fund is diverted from the 1% incentive scheme. The question is what purpose the cars actually serve. It is being used for private purposes of the officers of the department. It is mostly used to carry the officers (who are not entitled to get the facility) from their residence to office and back. It is also being used for other necessary operations like bringing their children to school / college, shopping for the family members and to meet other important household obligations. Those officers using the car are also enjoying Transport Allowance as per rules (not less than Rs 6400/- p.m. including D.A. thereon). It is rarely seen that any employee of the department have been allowed to do any official outdoor duty with these vehicles.
It is not surprising that IRS Association and ITGOA had never said anything on records against this practice as their members are the beneficiary of this privilege. But ITEF leaders who do not get this facility widely are also mum on this issue for some unknown reason. Solidarity for their elder brothers of ITGOA may be a possible reason.

When the Government is on austerity measure and cutting non plan expenditures, will somebody look into this drainage of money for gain of a handful of officers?

Update of departmental issues - ITEF version

Mr N.R. Parmar, I.T.O.,  who himself became a history in Income Tax Dept. for his much discussed court case, retired on superannuation on 29.11.2014.
ITEF, Central HQ recently issued circular regarding pending issues of the department including RRs, filling up of posts, Laptop to Inspectors etc. Important points discussed with new chairperson and intimated to members as under.
Filling up of Post of RY 2014-15.
On the basis of imputs that the DoPT may require more time to consider and approve the RRs of various cadres in the Department and the rider attached to the instant instructions on the matter, it was decided to go with the existing Recruitment Rules for all the cadres for filling up of vacancies for the Rect. Year 2014-15.  It was also decided to move separately to the Competent Authorities to get relaxation for filling up the posts in the Inspectors cadre lying vacant for want of candidates in one of the two categories by considering the candidates in the other category.   The instructions for holding DPC meetings and effecting promotions on the above lines will be issued shortly.
Deptl. Examination Results.
The declaration of results of the Departmental Examination for Inspectors is likely to be delayed till December, 2014 due to some technical problem in the answer papers of Delhi Region. 
Laptops to ITIs & Mobile handsets to all.
Still pending with Dept. of Expenditure - "We have also been informed that the IFU (Dept. Of Revenue) after returning the files quite a number of times for clarification etc. has finally approved the two proposals viz. Laptops to Inspectors and Mobile Handsets to all personnel out of the 1% incentive fund.  These proposals have been submitted to the Department of Expenditure for  Govt.’s final approval."

This examination will be held between 15th and 18th December 2014.
The reason for re exam is not disclosed , only "unavoidable reasons" mentioned in the letter issued by board.
