Monish Bhalla, a post graduate of Science, served the Department of Customs and Excise and Service Tax for almost two decades and in the quest to become a part of the SOLUTION rather than the PROBLEM, resigned from Government Service and started Taxolegal for providing legal consultancy in Indirect Taxation. Appreciation from his seniors and his own potential motivated him to take the road less travelled. Monish Bhalla, who is an Expert in Service Tax, is a prolific writer and is a regular columnist with the leading daily newspaper, DNA. The urge of doing something new and different made him an author of a book “Service Tax Clarifications” in the year 2004.

As the Additional Central Government Counsel in High Court of Gujarat for a long tenure, she had the opportunity to represent the Government of India in various important matters in the field of Central Excise, Customs, Service Tax, Constitution of  India.
