ED slaps Rs 229 cr   FEMA show cause penalty against PwC

New Delhi: The ED has slapped an over Rs 229-crore FEMA violation show cause penalty notice against multi-national accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), officials said on Friday.

They said the notice was issued under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) after completion of probe by the adjudicating authority which is the Special Director (Eastern Region) of the Enforcement Directorate.

The penalty is amounting to $4,98,42,747 which is equivalent to Rs 2,29,67,21,906, the order accessed by PTI

said.

Officials said the company along with other noticees received investments from Ms PricewaterhouseCoopers Services BV by "falsely" showing them as 'grants' so as to avoid attracting provisions of FEMA which require approval of the government or to say the Reserve Bank of India.
