Indore, May 29 (PTI) – In a significant development, the owner of a private firm and another individual have been apprehended in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, for their alleged involvement in a Goods and Services Tax (GST) fraud case. The firm, which operates in the food grains trade, is accused of utilizing fake bills to claim input tax credit worth over Rs 12 crore.
According to officials from the Central GST Commissionerate, the company obtained fake bills from a broker based in Gujarat, who has also been arrested. This individual, associated with the Gujarat broker, provided counterfeit bills from fictitious firms to the firm’s owner in exchange for a commission. Notably, the same person was previously arrested in connection with a similar GST fraud case in 2021.
A thorough investigation is currently underway to uncover the full extent of the fraudulent activities in this case. The authorities are committed to ensuring that those involved in GST fraud are held accountable for their actions. PTI HWP ADU ARU ARU.
