The Income Tax department has adopted the aggressive strategy of ‘naming and shaming‘ some large tax defaulters by publishing names of 18 entities who owe over Rs 500 crore tax to the exchequer.
The step is aimed to publicise and put these names in public domain so that the common man can come forward to help the department in knowing the whereabouts of these. The step is to enhance public awareness against these entities who are acting against law. These names have been put up on the department’s website.
The Government’s aggressive approach includes the names of 18 tax defaulters. The names in the list are Goldsukh Trade (Rs 75.47 cr), Somani Cements (Rs 27.47 crore), Blue Information Technology (Rs 75.11 cr), Appletech Solutions (Rs 27.07 cr), Jupiter Business (Rs 21.31 cr), Hirak Biotech (Rs 18.54 cr), Icon Bio Pharma & Healthcare Ltd (Rs 17.69 cr), Banyan & Berry Alloys (Rs 17.48 cr), Laxminarayan T Thakkar (Rs 12.49 cr), Virag Dyeing & Printing (Rs 18.57 cr), Poonam Industries (Rs 15.84 cr), Kunvar Ajay Food Pvt Ltd (Rs 15 cr), Victor Credit & Construction (Rs 13.81 cr), Noble Merchandise (Rs 11.93 cr) and G K Dharne (Rs 38.31 crore).
If you know the whereabouts of these wilful defaulters, please contact the nearest income-tax office.
