The owners of 11 non-existing firms were booked today on the recommendation of the State Excise and Taxation Department.

The fake firms were found involved in bogus billing to the tune of Rs 102 crore with Rs 14.37-crore tax evasion.

Following complaints by the department, the Chandni Bagh police registered 21 cases under Sections 420, 467, 468 and 471 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

During the physical verification by officials concerned, none of these firms was found existing at the registered addresses. They had been registered on the basis of fake documents, bank accounts and rent agreements and the mastermind had uploaded fake documents and details on the GST portal.

The department then calculated the firms’ transactions and billings following which, it was found that bogus bills of Rs 102 crore have been issued by firms across Haryana and other states.

Sources said the evasion of tax amounted to be Rs 14.37 crore — Rs 2.9 crore from Panipat district, Rs 4.25 crore from other districts and Rs 7.2 crore from other states.

Ranbir Singh, officiating Chandni Bagh SHO, said cases have been registered against the firm owners on the complaints of the Excise and Taxation Department.
