The organisational changes come amidst strong scrutiny on the smartphone makers by government agencies. Last month The Enforcement Directorate seized assets worth Rs. 5,551.27 crores of Xiaomi Technology India Private Limited. As per the agency, Xiaomi Technology India Pvt Ltd– a wholly-owned subsidiary of the China-based Xiaomi group– was found in contravention of the Foreign Exchange Management Act, which lays down rules for the transfer and receipt of foreign funds in the country.

On March 3, the Income Tax Department had said that it conducted raids against Chinese firms, which deal in telecom products, and learnt that the companies were involved in tax evasion through fake receipts.

The I-T Department had detected suppression of income of Rs 400 crore at that time. The raids were conducted in the second week of February across India, including the National Capital Region (NCR).

The searches had revealed that the Chinese firms had made inflated payments against receipt of technical services from its related parties outside India. The assessee company could not justify the genuineness of obtaining such alleged technical services in lieu of which payment was made, as also the basis of determination of consideration for the same.

The search action had further revealed that the firms had manipulated its books of account to reduce its taxable income in India through creation of various provisions for expenses, such as provisions for obsolescence, provisions for warranty, doubtful debts and advances etc., which have little or no financial rationale.

During the investigation, the groups had failed to provide any substantial and appropriate justification for such claims.
