PANAJI: The Investigation Wing of the Income Tax Department at Panaji launched a comprehensive search and survey operation on 12th June 2023 on two premier luxury real estate developers, M/s Vianaar Group and M/s Isprava Group.
This operation, spanning multiple states, aims to uncover potential tax evasion and undisclosed assets linked to high-end luxury villa projects.
The search and survey operation included 31 locations in renowned cities like Goa, Mumbai, Delhi, Noida, and Amritsar. Income Tax Department teams from Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Gurgaon, and Dehradun have been systematically executing the raid since early yesterday.
The Vianaar Group and the Isprava Group both have a large presence in the real estate business, with activities in a number of locations across India. Furthermore, these companies run a parallel hospitality market, renting out apartments and villas in India and South East Asia.
The current preliminary research has already revealed significant results. Significant sums of unaccounted cash and damning documentation were discovered during the search operations, indicating more tax evasion cases.
The Income Tax Department is still dedicated to maintaining the integrity of the taxation system and taking immediate action against any infractions.
