The DGGI had recovered Rs. 197.49 crore, 23 kg of gold and offending goods of high value have from two premises belonging to him; of the 23 kg, 11 kg gold had foreign mark.

Earlier it was said that the DGGI has decided to treat the cash recovered from the premises of Piyush Jain as the turnover of his company.

It was also stated that after admitting his liability, Jain has, with the approval of DGGI, will deposit a total amount of Rs 52 crore as tax dues and will be freed from all allegations.

It was also learnt that the DGGI department has agreed with the deposition of Piyush Jain and finalised the tax liability accordingly.

However, the DGGI made it clear that there was nothing going like that. The DGGI had refuted all the claims.

"Based on his voluntary admission of guilt and the evidence available on record, Piyush Jain was arrested on December 26 under section 132 of the CGST Act," DGGI had said.
