It’s Prime Minister Modi’s era. Crackdown on corruption is continuously on. Everything is under the eye lens of Prime Minister. Either corruption is done by anyone or done in any form it will be severely dealt with. Either the person committing the heinous crime, harming the state government may be a political leader, police official or a common man nobody is going to be spared. Everybody has to pay back for their bad deeds and this attitude of eating the public money.
After Vijay Mallya, Neerav Modi, Mehul Choksi now it is turn of the son in law of Gandhi family to face the heat of crackdown of Modi Government. Two days ago, the Income Tax department had ordered the company Sky Light Hospitality linked to Robert Vadra to pay tax worth Rs 25.8 crore as it found that that the company’s income was not Rs 37 lakh but almost Rs 43 crore in assessment year 2010-11 and company has undisclosed this income and has not paid tax.
Now it has come to limelight that it is not the only company that is under the scanner of Income Tax department but there are 17 other companies linked to son in law of Congress on which investigation is being carried out.
As per sources, a number of these companies were struck-off or converted into Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) after having routed dubious transactions and most of them had been engaged in the purchase and sale of land in Haryana and Rajasthan during the time that the Congress was in power in those states.
During the investigation it has been unearthed that the directorship of 12 of these companies belong to Robert Vadra’s mother. These companies allegedly raised interest-free advances and the same money was used to make investments in FDRs worth several crores. Furthermore they haven’t filed annual reports so that they could evade tax and their malicious intentions can be hidden.
Six of these companies claimed an expenditure of only Rs 4.54 lakh during four financial years but earned profits 1258 times that figure. Some of the companies earned a profit of Rs 17 crore across four financial years despite there being no expenditure and no salaries paid. Six companies have a paid-up capital of Rs 51 lakh but made investments of Rs 142 crore.
Further allegations against Vadra include a method of dealing where Vadra allegedly acted as an agent for builders, purchased land at throwaway prices in Haryana and Rajasthan and sold it to builders at a handsome profit. As per sources, a Robert Vadra aide, Amit Kumar Mehta, was also an employee of a real-estate major and served as Vadra’s link with that company.
These are the 17 companies under the scanner of Income Tax Department North India IT Parks LLP, Real Earth Estates LLP, Blue Breeze Trading LLP, Real Earth Estates Pvt Ltd,North India IT Parks Pvt Ltd, Skylight Hospitality LLP, Lambodar Art Enterprises India LLP, Lifeline Agrotech Pvt Ltd,Best Seasons Agro Pvt Ltd, Greenwave Agro Pvt Ltd,Future Infra Agro Pvt Ltd, Primetime Agro Pvt Ltd, Rightline Agriculture Pvt Ltd , Blue Breeze Trading Pvt Ltd, Skylight Hospitality Pvt Ltd,Skylight Reality Pvt Ltd and Lambodar Art Enterprises India Pvt Ltd
Now the brother in law of Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has to account for violating of the Companies Act 1956, for unexplained sources of funds in his companies and for acquiring loans from third-parties without any obligation to pay interest.
The UPA allegedly turned a blind-eye over the frauds being done. But that time has gone now. It’s the Modi rule. Nobody will be allowed to use the public money for their selfish interests.
