Over 1300 exporters who have fraudulently claimed ITC worth ₹1875 crore have been found to be untraceable and do not operate from their registered place of business. In a bid to reduce tax fraud numbers and mitigate tax risk, the CBIC created a risky exporters list. This list has over 7,500 exporters of which the IGST refund claims (worth ₹1,300 crore) of over 2,800 exporters has been suspended. These risky exporters have been identified on the basis of risk specific parameters created using data provided by Customs, GST, Income Tax and DGFT.
