With over 3 decades of multifaceted experience spanning engineering, customs, Excise and GST, Revenue Intelligence and Audit/Anti Evasion department and financial intelligence, I bring a wealth of expertise in driving compliance, uncovering financial irregularities, and spearheading impactful initiatives. Presidential Awardee for initiatives and dedicated service.

My journey commenced with pivotal roles in engineering and steel manufacturing, honing my project management skills. Transitioning to customs and excise, I led groundbreaking projects, notably establishing the inaugural website for the Nagpur Commissionerate, pioneering compliance initiatives, and overseeing patent processing in Mechanical Engineering during a critical phase for India.

My tenure at the Financial Intelligence Unit-India marked a significant phase where I crafted amendments, participated in international forums, and conducted outreach programs aimed at enhancing compliance among reporting entities.

Subsequently, in customs and GST intelligence roles, I navigated core investigations, revealing several instances of tax evasion, leading to arrests and recognition for contributions in revenue augmentation.
