Doddakoppalu Kariyappa Ravikumar (10 June 1979 – 16 March 2015), known commonly as D. K. Ravi, was an Indian civil servant and officer in the Karnataka cadre of Indian Administrative Service. Of the 2009 batch, he came into public view after launching a drive against land encroachment and sand mining within his jurisdiction of Kolar district, in his capacity as a district collector. Following fourteen months of service, he was transferred to Bangalore by the government of Karnataka as Additional Commissioner of Commercial Taxes (Enforcement) in October 2014. After his five months in service involving tax raids on major builders, he was found dead at his residence in Bangalore on 16 March 2015, under mysterious circumstances.

Career

As Assistant commissioner in Gulbarga

Ravikumar’s first posting as a civil servant was as the Assistant commissioner in Gulbarga from August 2011 to December 2012, following which he served as the District collector of Kolar district, Karnataka from August 2013 to October 2014. During this tenure, he was known for his work in ridding encroachments and exposing sand mafia in the district.

Deputy commissioner of Kolar district

Ravi had held the post of Deputy commissioner of Kolar district during August 2013 till his transfer in October 2014, allegedly under pressure from some local elected representatives. He had taken many bold steps to protect government land, including tanks, the main water source in the region, the checks on quality of building materials of public property like roads, during his tenure at Kolar. Large number of people staged dharnas in Kolar to protest, following his transfer orders as deputy commissioner.

As Additional Commissioner of Commercial Taxes (Enforcement)

Ravikumar was posted as the Additional Commissioner of Commercial Taxes (Enforcement) by the government on 29 October 2014 in Bangalore. Following this, he prepared a list of top-50 tax defaulters and set a target of INR1000 crore (US$160 million) tax collection from the defaulters. He began raids in Bangalore and expanded to places across Karnataka raiding business groups such as Embassy, Rajesh Exports, Shubh Jewellers, RMZ Institution, Prestige Group, Raheja Developers and Mantri Developers, and had reportedly collected over INR138 crore (US$22 million) in the first two weeks. Following this, he allegedly received threat calls from the defaulters.

I feel very Sad https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_sad.gif

Congress ruled Karnataka Home Minister and the Police Commissioner have already declared it is only a suicide. CM is also approving it. What else you want?

Just saw this comment and i feel that he was collecting tax for wrong people. What is the purpose of collecting tax if we, the common people, don’t get a single service from government.

^ He was a very good person. He was so good that, whole Kolar District had a Bandh when he was transferred to Bangalore from Kolar! They never wanted him to leave Kolar because he did good things in a very less time.

I don’t feel he is so coward to suicide! I don’t get this. I don’t get why good people like these who are really needed to India, die so early! https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_sad.gif

Yes, I read about him and i agree that he was an amazing person and i shouldn’t say non-topic things now. I am not saying he committed suicide but this is what government records will officially declare .

My comment was related to the general news prevalent these days: Government is implementing better Tax collecting solutions. Tax collection is getting more digitally advanced i.e. Government is only concerned with collected tax. When will they improve the services for which they collect tax?
