The income-tax (I-T) department on Tuesday said that a leading retail chain group that has branches across Tamil Nadu has suppressed sales worth Rs1,000 crore over the past few years.
 
The I-T department had conducted searches across the group in 37 locations at Chennai, Coimbatore, Madurai, and Tirunelveli on 1st December.
 
In a statement, it said that the popular group in Tamil Nadu that deals with jewellery, textiles, and home appliances was searched, and an amount of Rs10 crore in cash was seized. The raids also led to the seizure of jewellery, and bullion worth Rs6 crores that were unaccounted for.
 
The assessee has been systematically suppressing sale details by manipulating their book of accounts over the past several years, it said, and according to department sources, the suppression of sales was more than Rs1,000 crores.
