14,000 properties of Rs 1 crore each under scanner: I-T dept

Aug 31:The Income Tax Department (ITD) on Thursday said that about 14,000 properties worth over Rs 1 crore each are under its scrutiny as their owners have not filed income returns.
In a statement detailing the impact of demonetisation of old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes on black money, it said 'Operation Clean Money' was launched on January 31 to analyse data of persons who deposited large sums of cash post note-ban, with no previous matching returns of income.
While Rs 15,496 crore was admitted as undisclosed income, surveys resulted in seizure of Rs 13,920 crore.
The ITD statement follows the government defending demonetisation after the RBI data showed Wednesday that almost all the Rs 15.44 lakh crore junked currency notes were returned to the banking system.
The government said the deposits had ended anonymity and helped fix liabilities for the money.
In the first phase of Operation Clean Money exercise, data analytics was used to identify 18 lakh suspect cases where cash transactions did not appear to be in line with the tax profile of depositors, ITD said.
Online verification was done in a record time of four weeks, it said.
Using data analytics, 13.33 lakh accounts of some 9.72 lakh persons with unusual cash deposits of around Rs 2.89 lakh crore was identified and response sought.
The resource was captured "within a short span of 3-4 weeks," the statement said, without saying how many of them were genuine deposits and how many were unaccounted money.
It also did not give details of tax collected on unaccounted money.
The Operation Clean money has since moved into the next phase that "includes enforcement actions in high risk cases, taxpayer engagement through a dedicated website in medium risk cases and close monitoring in low risk cases.
"The exercise has also unearthed large number of persons and clusters having suspect transactions. These include about 14,000 properties of more than Rs 1 crore each where persons have not even filed Income Tax Returns.
"The investigations are in progress," the statement said. Agencies
