Reports stated many see this as a cleanup drive of the modi Sarkar 2.0 and some of the sacked officers have been allegedly involved in corruption, cases of illegal and disproportionate assets and sexual harassment. Further topping the list is a Joint Commissioner rank officer Ashok Agarwal against whom there are serious complaints of corruption and extortion filed by businessmen accused of helping self-styled Godman Chandraswami.

Moreover it also includes an IRS officer posted as Commissioner (Appeal) in Noida, SK Srivastava, who was accused of sexual harassment by two women IRS officers of Commissioner rank. Perhaps two other officers Homi Rajvansh (IRS, 1985) who had acquired movable and immovable assets worth over Rs 3 crore in the name of self and family members and BB Rajendra prasad on allegations of obtaining illegal gratification in lieu of passing a favorable appeal order in a case are also among those who have been asked to resign.
