GST of crores of rupees has been cheated by thugs by opening fake accounts within the bank. Only contract workers Jaminikanth Nayak or Vishwajit Tandia haven’t fallen victim to the present. An outsized number of workers, students, rickshaw pullers, vegetable sellers, many accounts are opened through fake certificates of fruit vendors. Within the name of a university student of this city and contract laborer of RSP, by opening an account with Urban Bank, a GST of Rs 42 crore has been created through a fake company. After this matter came to the fore again, an issue mark has been raised on the activities of bank management. Alongside fixing a corporation called Ganpati Traders by opening an account with Urban Cooperative Bank within the name of Soumyajit Swain, a university student living during a colony of Basanti Colony, the thugs cheated GST of Rs 12.55 lakh between 2017-19.

Similarly, an account was opened within the Urban Cooperative Bank within the name of Sarada Prasanna Swain, a contract laborer of RSP residing within the said slum, and a fake company within the name of Vasudev Minerals has been prepared and a GST of Rs 30 crore has been created within two years. While actually Somyajit and Sharda didn’t even know that there’s accounting in Urban Cooperative Bank in their name. Through this, crores of rupees are being transacted. After scrutiny of the GST department, there was a case of manipulating funds in his name. The department issued summons to both. After which both appeared before GST officials. He had told that he has never visited Urban Cooperative Bank in his life nor has he opened an account and traded money through it. Later, both the signatures were matched by the signatures made at the time of opening the account, which didn’t match.
In a court affidavit, the thugs forged signature
Even the signature and recorded mobile number within the court affidavit given to open the account weren’t matching. This matter remains into account. It’s not clear who is that the thug who cheated crores of rupees within the name of those two. As a result, both people are still browsing an equivalent uncertainty on whether the fees are going to be cleared or not. However, both the accounts opened in his name are frozen. Freezing the account is simply a formality. Because the thugs have already raised crores of rupees within the account. Only two to 3 thousand rupees are present within the account.
