New Delhi: Jun 25, 2013

Parthiv Patel‘s father Ajay Patel on Tuesday vehemently denied media reports that his son is willing to take up the post of Multi Tasking Staff (MTS) with the state Income Tax department.

There were reports in some section of the media that reserve India wicketkeeper Parthiv had applied for the post of MTS, which many believe is the post of a glorified peon with a salary of Rs 15,000.

“Let me clarify, Parthiv earns a monthly salary in the tune of Rs 1 lakh from Reliance where he has a contract for another 10 years. My son never approached for a job in I-T department. The offer came from that side,” a disgusted Patel senior told PTI over telephone from Ahmedabad.

Parthiv, had a USD 650,000 (Rs 3.15 crore approx) contract with Sunrisers Hyderabad, which ends this year as there will be fresh Indian Premier League auctions next year apart from handsome earnings for playing domestic cricket.

“When the offer came along, we thought that it won’t be bad if he gets an officer rank. How in the world did people think that my son will be game for peon’s job?” Patel questioned.

Incidentally, Parthiv hasn’t even passed his 12th standard examination and therefore is not eligible for any officer’s rank in a government organisation.

If Parthiv ever takes up a job with the Income Tax department, then he would have to represent the All India Revenue team in the BCCI Corporate Trophy.

Parthiv is currently holidaying in the US along with his wife Avni and two-year-old daughter.
