New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Sambit Patra on Wednesday sought Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s response on alleged income tax evasions of his brother-in-law Robert Vadra.
“Income Tax has directed Robert Vadra to pay arrears for the year 2010-11. We want to ask Rahul Gandhi what he has to say on the Income-Tax evasions of Robert Vadra,” he said at a press conference here.
Delhi-based Sky Light Hospitality LLP – a company linked to Robert Vadra – was reportedly ordered to pay over Rs 25 crore as tax liability by the Income Tax Department for the assessment year 2010-11.
As per the IT order, Sky Light Hospitality had earlier declared its income for AY 2010-11 to be Rs 36.9 lakh, a media report noted.
However, in its notice, the I-T department has re-evaluated the income and determined it to actually amount to Rs 42.98 crore, meaning that only about 0.86% of the income was declared.
Accordingly, tax payable on this revised income has been determined to be Rs 25.8 crore, the report stated.\
