CBIC asks taxmen to complete GST evasion investigations within a year

The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) has asked field offices to draw up an action plan so that no case of GST evasion is pending investigation beyond one year.

In an instruction to field formations, the CBIC has also asked GST officers to speed up investigation and issue show-cause notices in evasion cases, so that enough time is left with adjudicating authority to pass orders.

It said that the last date for filing the Annual Returns for 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20 financial years is already over.

The instruction by the CBIC follows a detailed analysis of cases of GST evasion and fraudulent input tax credit (ITC) availment booked viz-a-viz number of show-cause notices (SCNs) issued for 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20 financial years.
