NEW DELHI: Witnessing a rise in bogus dealers in the national capital, the Trade and Taxes Department (TTD) has started a special drive to nab them and cancel their registration.
In the past one week, the department cancelled registration of 129 bogus dealers, with fake declared turnover of Rs 5,025.55 crore. The department has also created new units for better effectiveness and reach.
“There are 10 zones and 106 wards operational in the TTD. One zone has been provided with eight blocks and an extra zone has been created to deal with the dealers registered with the city government,” Amit Yadav, Commissioner, Trade and Taxes said in a statement, adding, “There will be no extra financial burden on the govt in creating new blocks.”
The government has asked the Additional Commissioners and Joint Commissioners of all of the zones to place the Value Added Tax officials according to requirement of blocks.
