Fake invoicing racket involving Rs 68 crore tax evasion busted in Chhattisgarh

Raipur, 22 September, 2022

The Raipur unit of the Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST) Commissionerate has registered cases against seven bogus firms for evading tax worth Rs 68.04 crore through issuance of fake invoices, an official said on Thursday.

The commissionerate registered the cases against these fake firms found involved in receiving and passing on the Input Tax Credit (ITC) to several taxpayers within and outside Chhattisgarh without any actual supply of goods, an official statement said.

The action was taken as a part of the drive against parties engaged in issuing fake ITC invoices under the GST, it said.

The persons involved in this fake ITC racket would soon be identified and a strict action would be taken against them as per the law, the official said.
