Sahara's Aamby Valley Gets Rs 24,646 cr Income Tax Notice

Officials said the notice was issued by the taxman in January this year after the special audit of AVL's income for the Assessment Year 2012-13 found that the parent firm had allegedly floated a clutch of Special Purpose Vehicles whose incomes were later accounted on the account of AVL as they were merged with the former in due course of time.

New Delhi: In yet another blow to Sahara, the Income Tax department has issued a Rs 24,646 crore tax demand notice to group firm Aamby Valley Limited (AVL) after an special audit.

The department, as part of a special investigation and audit into the account books of AVL, found that an income of over Rs 48,000 crore for a particular assessment year was allegedly not reflected in the record books of the firm and hence it raised a fresh tax demand and penalty amount on it.

Meanwhile, a Sahara Group spokesperson has confirmed the development, reported PTI.

"Yes, the Income Tax Department has raised Rs 48,085.79 crores to the income of the Aamby Valley Limited with a total demand of income tax of Rs 24,646.96 crores on the Aamby Valley Limited," the spokesperson said in a brief statement.

Officials said the notice was issued by the taxman in January this year after the special audit of AVL's income for the Assessment Year 2012-13 found that the parent firm had allegedly floated a clutch of Special Purpose Vehicles whose incomes were later accounted on the account of AVL as they were merged with the former in due course of time.

The AVL, in its income return filed for AY 2012-13, had reflected a loss of few crores but the special I-T audit brought up the added income, a senior official said.

Earlier on April 17, the Supreme Court ordered the auction of Aamby Valley, Sahara’s marquee project in Maharashtra, as the company failed to pay Rs 300 crore as the first instalment of Rs 5,000 crore it was ordered to pay for allegedly duping the investors.

"Enough is enough. You cannot say something today and resile tomorrow," a bench, comprising Justices Dipak Misra, Ranjan Gogoi and A K Sikri, had said, taking strong note of non-submission of over Rs 5,000 crore by the Sahara Group.

The bench also cautioned Roy from playing with the court's order and said non-compliance of its order would invite the wrath of the law and ultimately he will be at his own peril.

The bench asked the official liquidator, attached with the Bombay High Court, to auction the Aamby Valley properties, estimated to be worth Rs 34,000 crore, and directly report to it.
