New Delhi : In a bid to curb tax evasion and improve compliance, the Directorate General of GST Intelligence (DGGI), which is the enforcement agency for checking indirect tax evasion, is learned to have submitted a detailed list of alleged tax evaders to Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC).
After having detected 85.10 percent increase in tax evasion in FY19 as against last fiscal, DGGI in a detailed report has mentioned over 30 top tax evaders in its report.
DGGI has now made it a monthly practice to share this report with CBIC and a copy of its February and March report has been reviewed by CNBC-TV18.
“In the report, some companies have voluntarily cleared the dues, while others have made part payments and some companies have also contested the claims,” the report said.
A Media House on May 3 had reported that DGGI has said that it “detected 3,767 cases worth Rs 49,158 crore of tax evasion in FY 19 as against 2,313 cases of Rs 26,557 crore in FY18, across India.”
DGGI detects GST, Central Excise and Service Tax evasion across India. DGGI is one of the major revenue intelligence wings of CBIC.
Of this Rs 49,158 crore, the government detected Rs 27,378 crore of service tax evasion, Rs 19,396 crore of GST evasion and Rs 2,384 crore of Central excise duty evasion, DGGI in its report said.
However, when it comes to the realisation of tax evasion, DGGI said that “tax realisation has increased by 306.76 percent in FY19 as against FY18.” “Of these 3,767 cases detected in FY19, intelligence wing realised Rs 11,853 crore in 2,522 cases vs 1,453 cases of Rs 2,914 crore in FY18, across India,” the report added.
Meanwhile, CBIC Chairman Mr. P.K. Das in an internal communication has called for concentrated efforts to plug indirect tax evasion.
