On the basis of the investigation conducted, it is seen that M/s ACS Hardware and Networking had fraudulently claimed ITC of approximately Rs. 85.38 Crore without any supply of goods or services and further the same amount of Rs. 85.38 Crore was passed on to M/s Rane Megastructures Pvt. Ltd. on the strength of invoices having a taxable value of Rs.474 Crore without any supply. M/s Rane Megastructures Pvt. Ltd. further passed on ITC of approximately Rs. 85.44 Crore to another company, without any actual supply.


In this cartel, bogus ITC has been passed on in a linear manner, in which ultimate beneficiary has availed and utilised ITC either for payment of their output tax liability or taking a refund of unutilised ITC. Some persons of this cartel have been arrested earlier.


In another case, a group of companies comprising M/s Keshariya Metal Pvt. Ltd., M/s Kajal Trading Co., M/s Hi-Tech Impex, M/s Gravity Alloys and M/s Sunshine Impex was found to be involved in creating fictitious invoices with an aim to avail and pass on of ineligible ITC on the strength of only invoices, without any supply of goods or services. In this manner, they have availed and passed on Input Tax Credit cumulatively amounting to Rs. 103.78 Crore in a fraudulent manner, without any supply of goods or services.

As per Section 132 of the CGST Act, 2017, issuance of an invoice or Bill without a supply of goods or services and wrongfully availing or utilisation of Input Tax Credit on a bill/invoice, without any supply of goods or services is a cognizable and non-bailable offence.
