Maharashtra GST busts fake ITC racket
Operator of three firms arrested for fake bills worth Rs.231.49 cr.

Maharashtra Goods & Service Tax Department has arrested Mr. Brijesh Vanitlal Shah, age- 48, operator of M/s. Om Impex and two other firms, on 04.08.2022 under the special investigation operation carried out against tax evading firms.

An investigation visit was conducted at the place of business of M/s. Om Impex. During preliminary investigation it was found that M/s. Om Impex and two other firms viz. M/s Brijeshwari Enterprises and M/s Chetna Metals LLP have availed Input Tax Credit (ITC) of Rs.41.67 cr. from suspected non-genuine tax payers by means of fake bills worth Rs.231.49 cr.

Metropolitan Magistrate Court has remanded Mr. Brijesh Vanitlal Shah to 14 days judicial custody. The operation was conducted under the guidance of Mr. Rahul Dwivedi (IAS), Joint Commissioner of State Tax, Investigation-A, Mumbai and Mr. Nilkanth Ghogare, Deputy Commissioner of State Tax and led by the Assistant Commissioner of State Tax Mr. Santoshkumar Rajput along with Mr.  Amol Suryawanshi and Mrs. Leena Kale.

With this, the State GST department has made thirty arrests in the current financial year. Given the comprehensive analytical tools and the inter-departmental coordination state GST has been deploying, this number is further going to increase thereby giving strong signal to the fraudsters and strengthening its drive against such people.

    Sir
    Sorry to say but first we are giving chance to thief to steal the tax and then we are running behind the thief and expecting that people will be honest. Same thing was happen to me sir, i had purchased and paid GST but my seller didnt paid so i couldnt manage to claim from Delhi seller. Again if I am going from Odisha to delhi the amount i am getting inpurt credit is much less costly than the expenses. Instead if we follow the system of paying gst on Control no. basis then money will hit directly to the account of Govt. account with both buyer and seller TIN and both will be happy and Govt get its revenue on the same time instead of waiting for 30days. God know who are seating in our GST council to make the procedure. Thanks just for information to think about our nation.
