Standard rate: 10% of tax refund

Reported on August 18, 2011 from Kolkata , West Bengal  ι Report #31670

Local West Midnapore IT office has been holding my IT refund for year 2007-2008 for 2+ years now. Accountant says that the officer wants his standard cut of 10% if my refund is to be released anytime soon. Still have to get any wind of where my refund of 1 lakh rupees is stuck. I am told by knowledgeable people that 10% is the "standard" rate here so I should just pay up.
