Mumbai, Dec 8 (IANS) Continuing its drive against tax evasion, the CGST Mumbai Central Commissionerate has busted a racket of generating fake Input Tax Credit (ITC) notes worth Rs 35 crore and nabbed the kingpin of the scam, an official said here on Wednesday.

The CGST said that as per investigations, the accused has generated the fake ITCs and passed them to more than 15 companies in and around Mumbai.

The accused -- who has been remanded to judicial custody for 14 days -- was receiving the fake ITC and passing it in the downward supply chain without any actual receipt or supply of goods.

The latest case is part of the series detected by the CGST sleuths Mumbai in the past three months with several arrests.
