This week, Rs.17 crore IT Refund scam was unearthed in Nashik and the suspect was named as CA Rajendra Patil.
However it has been noted that Mr.Patil is a Software Engineer who posed himself as a Practicing CA.
Mr. Patil has filed IT returns of over 1,800 Salaried individuals and facilitated more refunds than what they are eligible and charged a 20% commission.
Newspapers who have inadvertently published front page news about A CA INVOLVED IN FRAUD have retracted the news.
In this regard, an official said that “A CA is a topmost consultant for Income Tax and other taxes. Therefore people should consult only a legal CA and avoid frauds”
