The Directorate General of GST Intelligence (DGGI), Gurugram Zonal Unit (GZU), Haryana, has arrested Shri Nitin Jain, resident of Sonepat, Haryana, proprietor of M/s Shiv Trade Incorporation, Delhi, for issuing bogus invoices.

During investigation it was revealed that Shri Nitin Jain has issued bogus invoices through his firm M/s Shiv Trade Incorporation and another firm M/s Om Trade Inexim, opened in the name of dummy person, of various types of goods namely ferrous/ non-ferrous scrap, ingots, nickel cathode etc. amounting to ₹ 268.3 crores (approx).

Through bogus invoices, Shri Nitin Jain has fraudulently passed Input Tax Credit (ITC) amounting to ₹ 41.6 Crores (approx). This ITC was further availed by various entities to offset their GST liability and also passed on such fraudulent ITC to further buyers who availed the same to discharge their GST liability against their outward supplies with an ulterior motive to defraud the Government exchequer. During the course of investigation Shri Nitin Jain also admitted of having issued bogus invoices in lieu of certain fixed commission.
