    BHOPAL: According to the Income Tax department's final assessment report, the total wealth amassed by the tainted IAS couple Arvind Joshi and Tinu Joshi is pegged at Rs 240.38 crore.

    The report took over a year after the initial appraisal that assessed the amount at around Rs 360 crore in December 2010, ten months after IT sleuths raided the official residence of the Joshis here, officials said.

    The final assessment report running into more than 2,400 pages says the duo owned 18 flats worth Rs 18 crore in Assam, besides 387.49 acres of land worth Rs 193 crore in tribal-dominated Mandla, Umaria, Sagar and others parts of MP.

    They also possessed plots in MP worth Rs 3.28 crore, flats worth 3.43 crore, a Rs 2 crore flat in Delhi, shares worth Rs 1.1 crore and Rs 4 crore stashed in ICICI bank. The babu couple also had investments of around Rs 15 crore in businesses, officials said.

    The Special Police Establishment (SPE) of the Lokayukta had also carried out a raid at the couple's home on December 10, 2010. The final assessment report of the IT department is expected to give a boost to SPE which is yet to file a chargesheet against the tainted couple. The SPE has been waiting for this report to hasten its proceedings in the case.

    The Joshi couple, who belong to the 1970 MP IAS cadre, had also served at the centre. Arvind was joint secretary in the defence ministry during the 1999 Kargil war and his wife had worked as deputy secretary in the PMO between July 1, 1988 and January 1, 1990.:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::scared2::scared2:

    I thought this was an old report...but it must be said, no babu can acquire such wealth without active political support and patronage..the bigger fish escaped the net as always..

    Politicos come and go every five years, so one sees them blazing through worse than a pack of marauding hyenas or rabid dogs (no disrespect to hyenas or dogs), who loot, pilfer, plunder and rob the state and the people with no thought or concern, without the fear of getting caught ever. Blackbeard the scallawag pirate or Changez Khan had nothing on these cretin.

    Babus on the other hand, are there for life, till they retire. They can afford to be patient and pick up their targets one by one, pilfer, plunder and loot they may, but more like an art collector building up his collection through trickery, lies, deceit and fencing. In other words, most of them are slow acting poison whose effects are not immediately realised and by the time the reality dawns, it is too late.

    The two sides of a poisonous, malevolent, cursed coin.

    blackwater, this has been an ongoing case now for at least 6 months.

    In the meantime, the Anti Corruption wing in MP has been very busy. Drivers and store keepers have been found to have assets of Crores of Rs.

    Ya big surprise there. As if they are the only corrupt ones there. Almost every MP OR MLA is much bigger rats than them.
