Port Blair, Jan 12: The Andaman & Nicobar Islands UTGST Department conducted a multi locational search and seizure operation on a chain of Hotels and their sister concerns, having their premises at locations in Port Blair, Swaraj Dweep and Shaheed Dweep. During the operation, it was found that these firms are huge tax defaulters and are indulging in several non-compliance issues varying from wrong availment of Input Tax Credit; Non-payment of tax to the government; and non-filing/delayed filing of the mandatory statutory returns without paying appropriate returns.
Till now, tax default of Rs.3 Crore have been detected. The department of UTGST, Andaman & Nicobar Islands appeals all such persons/firms do not avail in-eligible tax credit, pay the tax collected to the government as well as file their mandatory returns within due time to avoid any legal action against them under GST Act and also demand of tax along with appropriate interest and penalty against such tax payers will be raised and action for recovery of the same will be initiated accordingly.
