Delhi High Court - Summons - fake ITC case - ITC - Taxscan

The Delhi High Court stayed the Summons in a fake Input Tax Credit (ITC) case.

The Petitioners, Ankit Bindal challenged summons issued by CGST North Delhi on the ground that the summons are vague and require Petitioners’ to produce documents and records for the period from date of GST registration to till date, which shows that the summons have been issued without application of mind.

Advocate Ruchir Bhatia on behalf of the Petitioner argued that the summons have been issued to the petitioners which are not only vague but also seek self-incriminating material from them.

Mr. Bhatia, inter alia, stresses the point that, in the summons, bank statements have been called for without specifying the relevant period for which the same need to be furnished. Besides this, the petitioners have been called to tender 􏰀voluntary statement􏰁.

Mr. Harpreet Singh, who appears on advance notice, on behalf of the respondents, says, he will obtain instructions in the matter.

The division bench of Justices Rajiv Shakdher and Talwant Singh listed the matter on April 12, 2021.
