Exclamation Indian Black Money: The Swindler’s List

Indian Black Money: The Swindler’s List
the black list that has been kept away from Indians for two years


It is almost two years since the German Government had passed on the names and bank account details of eighteen Indians who had stashed their alleged ill-gotten wealth in the LGT bank of Liechtenstein, a well-known tax haven nation, 190 km from Munich, Germany.

Germany had officially handed over the list to the Indian Government on 18 March 2009. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee have since said more than once that this list cannot be disclosed to the Indian people. Opposition parties like the BJP and the Left Front have repeatedly said the names must be disclosed. The BJP has been accusing the government of shielding the names of the tax evaders and not doing enough to bring back the crores of rupees stashed away in tax havens.

Thus, the list has become a subject of tremendous controversy and suspense.

TEHELKA has accessed 16 of the 18 names, of which we are putting out 15 right now. These names include individuals as well as trusts. At this point, we are putting out 15 names without disclosing details like their addresses, the businesses they are involved in and the total money they have stored away in Liechtenstein. Abiding by the basic journalistic principle of proving the accused an opportunity to present their side of story, TEHELKA has approached each of these individuals involved and is awaiting their response.

Once these individuals respond, we shall share the full details of who these people are and what they do. We shall also put out their responses. This, then, is the list.

1. Manoj Dhupelia

2. Rupal Dhupelia

3. Mohan Dhupelia

4. Hasmukh Gandhi

5. Chintan Gandhi

6. Dilip Mehta

7. Arun Mehta

8. Arun Kochar

9. Gunwanti Mehta

10. Rajnikant Mehta

11. Prabodh Mehta

12. Ashok Jaipuria

13. Raj Foundation

14. Urvashi Foundation

15. Ambrunova Trust

The three trusts in this list are registered outside India.

The government has been claiming so far that a detailed investigation into all the bank account details provided by Germany is underway and making the names public would violate the agreement between two sovereign countries, India and Germany.

According to highly placed sources, the investigation into the 15 names that TEHELKA is disclosing, is close to completion and the Central Board of Direct taxes would soon prosecute these trusts and individuals under the relevant provisions of the Income tax Act.

The sources told TEHELKA that the two main charges proved against these individuals are of tax evasion and concealment of income.

The authorities also believe that some of these account holders could be fronts for high profile individuals. One name in particular is being investigated for suspected links with a well-known Indian politician.

The name of the chairman of a major Indian corporation is also part of the list, but TEHELKA is holding back his name until we have his full version.

According to Pranab Mukherjee, the German Government has provided the information under the strict confidentiality clauses of the Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement, and hence they could not be disclosed at the stage of investigation.

However, once the government launches prosecutions, the name would be made public, he had said.

These 18 names are part of the list of 1,400 clients, which were stolen from the databank of LGT Group, the Liechtenstein bank owned by the principality's ruling family, and passed on to German tax authorities in 2008.

The German government had paid as much as €5 million, or $7.4 million, for information on German account holders in Liechtenstein on a disk provided by an informant to the German Federal Intelligence Service, or BND.

After this, Germany and England had launched massive investigations into the suspected tax evasions and have since prosecuted dozens of their citizens on charges of tax evasion and concealment of income.

The German Government alone had initiated action against over 600 of its tax payers.

Besides taking action against its own citizens, the German Government had also shared this information with other countries including India.

But the Indian names figuring in LGT Bank list are only a tip of the iceberg. Experts estimate that Rs 65 lakh crores of ill-gotten wealth earned by Indians is stored in Swiss banks alone.

Re: Indian Black Money: The Swindler’s List

Are Mumbai's diamond merchants on leaked black money list?
Quote:

"We are in trouble, now," said one of the top diamond merchants and a close relative of brothers Arun Mehta and Dilip Mehta whose names, most probably, are being flashed again and again on the news channels in the list of people who have, allegedly, kept their ill-gotten money in Germany-based Liechtenstein bank.

Arun Mehta is an Indian citizen but Dilip no more has that status, their relative said.

Rediff.com tried to reach the Mehta brothers, but they could not be contacted.

A close relative of the Mehtas, while watching the television, said: "Many persons on the list are Gujarati diamond merchants with offices all over world."

Their close business client, however, said that two of the biggest diamond merchants' families had been exposed in the list leaked by the Tehelka magazine and that few others were tense because of the revelations.

Besides the Mehtas, other names on the list belong to the family that founded the Lilavati Hospital in Bandra.

Kirtilal Mehta, Prabodh Mehta and Rashmi Mehta's family had a company called Gembel and Beautiful diamonds. But both companies are in red now. The family is also facing troubled times over the control of Lilavati Hospital in the city.

When Kirtilal Mehta died in 1993, The New York Times published an obit giving him credit for development of the diamond business the world over. He started the hospital in the memory of his first wife Lilavati.

Two years back, the German government had passed on the names and bank account details of 18 Indians to the Indian government, who had stashed their alleged ill-gotten wealth in the LGT bank of Liechtenstein, a defamed tax haven.

The government had been claiming so far that the names could not be leaked because facts are being ascertained and action will be taken.

That means, most probably, these diamond merchants may be knowing that their names are with government as Tax and Enforcement department must have enquired with them for their explanation.

However, one of the top merchants confirmed that diamond market is stunned by the revelation.

"We don't know how it will be interpreted. Since the money was kept in tax heavens, the source of money would be difficult to establish."

He added, "Many of the persons on the leaked list are not Indian citizens but, however, their adopted country would also quiz them. The law regarding black money is much more stringent in Europe than Asia."

Dilip is now not an Indian citizen, but his brother Arun runs a firm named Rosy Blue with office on 16th Floor in Prasad Chambers. Arun's trading firm is known as king of diamond bazaar in Mumbai [ Images ].

Dilip was recently in the limelight; he was among the bidders for Kochi IPL.

He is a cricket buff and friend of Maharashtra [ Images ] strongman and Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar [ Images ].

Arun, one of the richest residents of Mumbai, came into limelight when he bought MF Husain's paintings at a record-breaking price when the art scene was not as hyper as it is today. None of the diamond merchants was accessible to ascertain their identity on the list.
