Besides, the actor violated the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) by raising ₹2.1 crores from overseas donors, CBDT added.

According to the tax department, the actor used his NGO Sood Charity Foundation to collect donations.

The NGO collected ₹18.94 crore since 1 April 2021 but spent only ₹ 1.9 crore towards various relief works; the remaining ₹17 crore was found lying ununutilised bank account of the Foundation.

Pandya conundrum ahead of Pak meeting

IF Ravi Shastri happens to sit at an auction table with the India’s 15-man squad and one more spot to fill, how much would he go for a batting allrounder? The chances are he would not even hesitate to spend the remaining purse on one. As India prepared for their opening match of the T20 World Cup against Pakistan by beating Australia on Wednesday in a warm-up fixture, they looked every bit good to be considered among the favourites for the tournament. But three days ahead of their match against their arch-rivals, they are still some distance away from finding what will be their right combination thanks to the uncertainty around Hardik Pandya’s ability to bowl. If he is fit to bowl, Pandya could offer them more options, namely allowing India to field three spinners. If not, India may be forced to play only two on pitches that are slow.
