Delhi VAT Dealers – Caution in Purchases against Tax
Buy goods from a trusted seller who files return and thereby pays due
tax collected from you.
Mere 2B statement filing by selling dealer not sufficient – selling
dealer needs to back it up with return.
Some selling dealers disappear before last date of filing returns – Not
only would you lose input tax credit and pay the same with interest and penalty
but also face criminal prosecution for producing tax invoices from such selling
Civil & Criminal action has started against defaulting selling and
purchasing dealers who are benefitting from such bogus tax invoices.
Department will in future, pending enquiry, place names of such dealers under
category of doubtful dealers on its website.
