    Anything goes and free for all to loot the tax payers money. We seriously have to start to question why we should pay taxes to these frauds.

    ===========

    NEW DELHI: Always double check airfares with the airline before buying a ticket from an agent. The Rajya Sabha secretariat paid long haul international fares for domestic air tickets for one of its members. The scam was detected only when the MP realized the incredulous prices paid for the tickets and then complained to the government.

    The secretariat paid Rs 99,292 for a one-way Delhi-Chennai flight on Jet Airways for Ashk Ali Tak, a Congress RS member from Rajasthan. A Chennai-Hyderabad ticket on Air India was bought for Rs 35,184. A Hyderabad-Bangalore journey on Jet and a Bangalore-Jaipur ticket on low cost IndiGo 'cost' Rs 67,270 and Rs 17,270, respectively.

    Typos happen but once, not with clock work regularity.
