The Delhi government’s trade and taxes (T&T) department on Saturday seized a consignment of 600 iPhones valued at Rs 2 crore. The consignment included both iPhone 5S and 6S models.
Value Added Tax (VAT) Commissioner S S Yadav stated that the consignment was being delivered by a renowned courier company. “The catch has also led to the busting of racket of illegal import of high-value electronic goods from other states to Delhi and their sale in Delhi without payment of VAT. Strict action is being taken both against the dealer and the courier company involved,” said Yadav.
Yadav said that automatic number plate reader cameras have also been deployed at the entry points to check vehicles bringing undeclared goods.
