    Sir,

    there are bogus ( Ghost) employees at every ministry and even at the cabinet office itself.

    GoI should enhance their system and opt for digital PAYE not at great cost to avoid these thieves who have no dignity, ruthless who should be prosecuted.

    We deserve reforms, transparency and rebuilding our century.
