AHMEDABAD: A bogus billing scam was unearthed by the State Goods and Services Tax (GST) department where Eway bills worth Rs 100 crore were found to be generated by a firm named May Iyer Enterprise, based in Mundra, Kutch. As these Eway bills were suspected to be fake, state GST department officials have sealed the firm’s office.
May Air is one of the 49 firms that were investigated by state GST department, after a stock of billing books of several firms were seized from a firm in Gondal.
Based on this, firms from Morbi, Rajkot, Gondal, Mundra and Gandhidham are currently being investigated by the department.
In addition to these, some four transporters are also being probed. During investigation, it was learnt that eight firms were registered at the same address in Gondal from where the bill books were recovered.
GST officials said that investigation was still on in the case and they were trying to identify the modus operandi of the entire scam and how are the firms taking advantage out of this.
