Inflated list of dowry articles at caw ?

Hello Sirs and Experts , almost same query is there, but few diifferent aspects, she had written some common items in her list which is must at someones home and belong to us only she had never bring those items etc and almost 4 times jwellery according to actual an x lakh amount of cash which is not given at all at the time of marriage. we have to give reply to CAW for this false list, at the time of marriage no list was prepared, she had prepared the list just to give in CAW, i have two main question, what will happen after the reply of admit items ? whether CAW will ask for bills or wedding photos or videos, beacuse it is sure that there is no videos and photo for the false items and there is photos and video of admit items are available .they can arrange false bills but i read somewhere that we can get RTI on that so that it will easily proved as bogus or fake, if amount is inflated.

1. Ask for Bills. Press for it if you can. If they are not producing them make sure police writes the reason why they are not producing the same.

2 If such bills are produced you can go about in 2 ways:

a. RTI in Income Tax / Sales Dept. of your area asking details on such bills.

b. Ask as to from where did they get the money to purchase such items and where is the paper trail of them withdrawing such an amount for such a purpose.


3. Even if CAW doesn't ask for these items, make sure that you in your reply ask them to produce such bills/evidence.

Thanks for your Reply Sir

Sir, if they say, they already have cash, or cash given by relatives for the marriage etc means no documentary evidences but relatives witnesses are there is this will work ? and they had give a huge amount as a expense on marriage which is just 5 times of the actual, and in that area (locality) rent of halls and banquets are very reasonable or much lesser than they wrote in the list. Majorly they have a verbal evidences and witnesses of there closed relative false witness work in court ?
