Patna: Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has paid Rs 20 crore income tax in 2013-14 to retain his pole position as the highest individual taxpayer in the Bihar and Jharkhand region, a senior Income Tax official said on Friday.

Dhoni has paid an income tax worth Rs 20 crore in 2013-14 to emerge as the highest taxpayer in individual category in Bihar and Jharkhand region for sixth consecutive year, Principal Chief Commissioner, Patna, R K Rai told reporters.

On the dip in the I-T paid by Dhoni this fiscal as compared to Rs 22 crore he paid last year, Rai said that the drop may be due to reduction in the Team India captain’s income from various sources.

Dhoni’s income from advertisement sources might have come down this year, Rai said.
