Government is matching Income Tax returns with GST claims to weed out Tax evaders.

In its second term, the Narendra Modi government will continue its crackdown on tax evasion and money laundering through data analysis to help detect overstated Goods & Services Tax (GST) claims and their mismatches with income tax returns.

The Centre decided to undertake this assessment for the first time since the launch of GST on July 1, 2017.

They have found many cases of understatement of Income Tax returns and overstatement of GST claims.

Tough consequences may await the wrong doers as the Supreme Court recently ruled that GST offenders will not get protection from arrest.

The government is keen to use data analytics for the Revenue Department later this year since there have been offences with respect to customs.
