I would like to report the news of identity theft which occured with me.
Somebody using my PAN card /number to register a company and do turnover of Rs. 19.88 crore in last financial year.
I came to know about this when I received an sms last Sunday from Income Tax department stating that my income tax filling not matching with business turnover filed under GST1.
I am trying to lodge a FIR with local police station. On first instance i failed, they didnt give any importance.
My concerns are how do I prove that I am no way linled with this business entity and not aware about this business turnover ?
Secondly can I file a defamation case against the company or fraudstars who used my PAN to do the fraud and ask for compensastion ?
