The Chairman of Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC), Vivek Johari, recently congratulated officers of the Directorate General of GST Intelligence (DGGI) for detecting cases of non-payment of GST and incorrect discharge of GST liability, leading to recovery of over Rs 332 Crores
Detection of non-payment of GST on inward supplies
DGGI officers were able to detect an entity that did not make timely payments to its suppliers while availing input credit on inward supplies. The entity had not paid the GST on the supplies received and instead claimed input credit on the same. This led to a total credit of approximately Rs 260 Crores. The officers detected the case and subsequently reversed the entire amount.
Detection of incorrect discharge of GST liability
DGGI officers detected another case of an entity that was not correctly discharging its GST liability on account of issuing invoices on ‘cross charges’ on net rather than gross basis. This led to the entity short-paying tax to the tune of more than Rs 72 Crore. The officers were able to detect the case and recover the entire tax amount.
