Finance Ministry finds Rs 400 cr custom duty, service tax evasion
May, 18th 2013

In its bid to plug revenue leakage, the Finance Ministry has detected custom duty and service tax evasion of at least Rs 400 crore between January and March this year.

The detection came after the Directorate General of Central Excise Intelligence (DGCEI) and Directorate General of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) - two leading financial intelligence agencies under the Revenue department of the Ministry - tracked over 2,300 dubious banking transactions, official sources said.

The Financial Intelligence Unit-India (FIU), an agency tasked with analysing and disseminating information relating to dubious exchanges, had sent 1,443 Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs) to DGCEI and 904 to DRI during the first three months of 2013.

Taking leads from these STRs, the DGCEI has detected tax evasion of at least Rs 50 crore and recovered Rs 28 crore, the sources said.

The DRI, on the other hand, detected Rs 350 crore being remitted through banking channels by various importers and exporters using bogus invoices and effected a recovery of Rs 1.16 crore as duties in these cases, they said.

Acting on the intelligence following suspicious Cash Transaction Reports (CTRs), the DRI also detected possible diversion of duty-free imported goods of Rs 400 crore. “The officials have recovered cash of Rs 17 crore while following these cases,” the sources said.

Both STRs and CTRs are transactions of Rs 10 lakh and above with some of them believed to be related to proceeds of crimes including drug trafficking and black money.

These two agencies were looking into the cases of misuse of exemption notifications and undervaluation of imports involving evasion of customs duty of several hundred crores, the sources said.
