On the basis of this disclosure, the chaatwala now have to pay approximately Rs 52 lakh as income tax.

A report said that the team of IT officials were shocked to find out that the chaatwala had amassed unaccounted income and made huge investments in real estate. The chaatwala also did not file his Income Tax Return (ITR) for the last two years, the report said.
