“He has paid tax till 2010. He will have to pay one-time along with penalty as per rules,” said Nagendra Paswan, DTO Ranchi. “The typist while uploading details of Dhoni’s Hummer couldn’t find the vehicle’s model type in options back then, as it is an international brand. As you can’t put in any further details until you select a model, he must have selected ‘Scorpio’ as model type for Dhoni’s car. It was a typing mistake,” he added.
