Fake GST Summon: Taxpayers warned about fraudsters sending fake and fraudulent Summons for GST Violations
The Directorate General of GST Intelligence (DGGI), Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) recently discovered that some individuals with fraudulent intent are preparing and sending fake summons to taxpayers who may or may not be under investigation by the DGGI.
The fake summons that are being handed out may appear legitimate since they include a Document Identification Number (DIN), but these DIN numbers are not given by DGGI in the case of these organisations.
To deal with this issue, DGGI has been taking serious steps by informing and filing complaints with the Police against those involved in creating and sending fake and fraudulent summons.
CBIC published Circular No. 122/41/2019-GST on November 5, 2019, regarding the generation and quoting of DIN on communications delivered by CBIC officers to taxpayers.
Taxpayers are reminded that they can verify the genuineness of any communication (including Summons) from the Department by using the ‘VERIFY CBIC-DIN’ window on the CBIC’s website or the DIN Utility Search on the online portal of the Directorate of Data Management (DDM), CBIC.
Individual taxpayers who receive summons from DGGI/CBIC formations that appear suspicious or perhaps fictitious should immediately submit them to the relevant jurisdictional DGGI/CBIC office for verification so that appropriate action can be taken against individuals involved in these fraudulent acts.
