Vocal Opponent of the VDIS SchemeEdit

When the then Deputy Director or Additional Commissioner of Income Tax asked the Vishwa Hindu Parishad to furnish its income tax returns for 1989–90, the notice was squashed[3] and although the Income tax department asked the VHP to submit details, the Central Government did not investigate the case but transferred him to Madras and then suspended him[4][5].

In 2000, Gupta also spoke against corruption in cricket[6] and made an allegation on an unnamed former Indian Cricket Captain to have declared ₹160 Million in the Voluntary Disclosure of Income Scheme in 1997[7]. He suspected abuse of the VDIS by criminals[8].
