clients roughly double the 628 names that French authorities gave to the Government in 2011 The new revelation— published today as part of a global agreement — is expected to significantly widen the scale and scope of the ongoing probe by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) appointed by the Supreme Court Prominent people on the HSBC list include: Businessmen Several top businessmen are HSBC

HSBC headquartered in London when informed about the global investigation first insisted that the ICIJ destroy its data Told about the full extent of the reporting team’s findings (106458 “clients” and data on major politicians diamond traders arms dealers and members of drug cartels) HSBC said: “We acknowledge that the compliance culture and standards of due diligence in HSBC’s Swiss private bank as well as the industry in general were significantly lower than they are today” The bank added that it had refocused this part of its business “As a result of this repositioning HSBC’s Swiss

84-year-old stenographer Annie Meneaud born in Kannur Kerala whose account was opened in Dubai and had a balance of $100020 Then there are some mysterious HSBC account-opening statements such as one named “HGP” for a Kolkata-born UK citizen who has given a Carlton House Terrace address and as the statement shows instructed that all transactions be kept in the bank’s safe deposit box This 74-year old client’s balance: $13352 million A scrutiny shows there are 276 account holders with at least $1 million in their balance of whom 85 are residing in the country Topping the list of account-holders with an India connection is prominent London-based PIO Swraj Paul with a balance of $386 million The lowest balance is for Gujarat-born UK citizen Naman Sarwar Malik who has $669 in his account READ:Bank’s services for arms dealers in conflict with its own policy The Indian Express was the first to report on August 7 2011 that French authorities had handed over details of around 700 HSBC account holders and as was the case in several countries a frantic tax chase began In November 2012 India Against Corruption led by Arvind Kejriwal had released names of some account holders These new papers now reveal that while he got some names right his claim regarding the balance in those accounts was way off the mark Govt’s action so far Top officials of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) said that undisclosed income to the tune of Rs 3150 crore ($508 million) has been brought to tax from among HSBC account-holders but pointed out that there were some significant gaps in the data — some 200 accounts with the Government had no balance and 211 of them were of NRIs “We are contacting everyone and not leaving this as a presumption We are putting the onus of proving NRI status during the relevant period on the account-holder” a senior CBDT official told The Indian Express Such updated data is being regularly provided by the CBDT and the SIT to the Supreme Court and officials said that tax collections penalties and prosecutions are being chased on war footing One issue that has however befuddled the CBDT is whether HSBC and its officials too should be brought under scrutiny A confidential note dated October 27 2014 shows that following a video conference on the subject of HSBC collections the prosecution of HSBC officials was being contemplated The note reads “It has been explained that involvement of HSBC/its officials in opening and operation of the accounts also needs to be identified and reported to the Board… such facts would be extremely important while considering prosecution of HSBC/ its officials as abettors to Indian assessees” Several HSBC account-holders contacted by The Indian Express said that they objected to what some described as the “high-handedness’’ of the Income Tax Department Kuldip Singh Dhingra chairman of Berger Paints for instance said that he had routed all money in the account through legal channels and despite that he was subjected to a search (around 150 such search operations have been conducted) He has filed a petition in the Delhi High Court as an action of protest “The IT Department should do its homework before they move in and conduct raids We strongly object to such treatment’’ Another industrialist Jitendra Virwani chairman of the Embassy Group said that all his bank accounts had been declared to I-T authorities but that despite clarifications the department had told him tax was due for the HSBC account “I have only paid up to avoid the harassment of prosecution” There are many account holders led by Delh-based industrialist Sanjiv Lamba who approached the Settlement Commission and obtained immunity from prosecution Suresh Nanda himself an NRI said his brother Paul Nanda and his son Sanjeev Nanda had also approached the Settlement Commission and paid up taxes there Until last month CBDT officials said 27 HSBC account-holders had paid up penalties and 15 were facing prosecution proceedings for concealment of income in the accounts The SIT has reportedly been informed that the target number for HSBC account-holders to be prosecuted is 300 But that was based on the list of over 600 Now that the list has doubled sources said the scope of the investigation just widened ALSO READ: Previous Indian Express-ICIJ investigations Indian Express-ICIJ probe: Vijay
