The Government has taken necessary measures for expeditious investigation in such cases including through enhanced international cooperation.
Determination of total volume of money that has been evaded by Indian persons in violation of laws/applicable regulations is subject matter of investigation and other follow-up actions, which is an on-going process. Such follow-up actions under direct taxes law include assessment of income, levy of tax, interest & penalty and filing of prosecution complaints before criminal courts, wherever applicable. Other law enforcement agencies such as Enforcement Directorate, Central Bureau of Investigation, etc. also take action in relevant cases under respective laws administered through them, depending upon facts of each case. However, details regarding the amount of money involved in all such cases are not maintained centrally.
This was stated by Shri Jayant Sinha, Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha yesterday.
