Based upon specific intelligence, the officers of the Anti Evasion branch of Central Goods and Service Tax (CGST), Commissionerate, Delhi (East) have busted a major racket for the generation of huge inadmissible input tax credit (ITC) through fake billing of Rs 1,278 crore (approx).


Oct 30, Bengaluru: The well-established syndicate was being operated by floating seven different fake firms with the intent of passing of inadmissible credit to the tune of Rs 137 crores (approx).


Searches were conducted over more than nine places spread over different locations in the state of Delhi and Haryana to identify the taxpayers, who were defrauding the Government of its legitimate taxes.



The modus operandi of the fraudulent taxpayers includes bogus invoices/bills creation, without actual movement of goods. All the e-way bills generated to transport the goods were fake.


The mastermind of the entire racket Shri Ashish Aggarwal has been arrested under Section 132 of the CGST Act on 29.10.2020 and has been remanded to the transit judicial custody by the duty Metropolitan Magistrate till the hearing of regular judicial remand application by the CJM Patiala House Court.



The accused kingpin of this fake billing racket has been absconding for more than 60 days and after intense coordinated efforts of the officers of Anti Evasion branch, his presence was secured to record the statement, wherein he admitted his guilt and was arrested subsequently.


The primary beneficiary firm of this bogus billing network was M/s Maya Impex, which has been registered in the name of Shri Ashish Aggarwal’s 66 years old mother through which fake ITC of Rs 77 crore has been passed on. Shri Ashish Aggarwal knowingly committed offences under Section 132(1)(b) and 132(1)(c) of the CGST Act, 2017 which are cognizable and non-bailable offences as per the provisions of Section 132(5) and punishable under clause (i) of the subsection (1) of Section 132 of the Act ibid.



The fake billing operation was primarily engaged in generating and passing of fake ITC primarily to the milk products industry. Bogus invoices were raised against the fictitious sale of milk products such as ghee, milk powder etc.


It is pertinent to mention here that apart from the other number of distinct companies, major brands like M/s Milk Food Ltd. was one of the major beneficiaries of this inadmissible credit. During the course of search operations, a huge quantum of incriminating documents pertaining to this racket was recovered.
