In order to detect cases of GST evasion, the government has begun taking the help of technological advancements. It is now using robust data analytics and artificial intelligence to identify and track risky taxpayers and detect tax evasion, official sources said.
The government also carried out a special all-India drive to weed out fake or bogus registrations from May 16 to July 15. It also amended the Central GST rules to provide for biometric-based Aadhaar authentication of registration applicants who appear to be risky, based on data analytics.
The amendments also were made to allow physical verification in high-risk cases, even when Aadhaar has been authenticated.
Also, the GST Council, in its 50th meeting held earlier this month, had suggested further amending rule 10A to provide that the details of the bank account will be required to be furnished within 30 days of the grant of registration or before the filing of GSTR-1, whichever is earlier.
Restrictions were also put on availing of input tax credit ITC to invoices and debit notes furnished by the supplier in their statement of outward supplies while sharing of data with partner law enforcement agencies for more targetted interventions was also facilitated.
