The Export-Import Bank of India on Saturday clarified that it has no connection with the case in which the Delhi Police last week busted a gang for allegedly stealing licences of export companies.
The cyber cell of the Delhi Police on July 27 said it busted a gang involved in allegedly stealing licences of multiple export companies by fraudulently using their information.
However, it was erroneously stated in a report dated July 27 that the gang operated through a network of Export-Import Bank of India agents.
The reported case has absolutely no connection with the Export-Import Bank of India, according to the bank.
The police had initiated a the probe after receiving complaints last year from four different garment export firms alleging that their licences of duty rebate on garment exports (RoSCTL) had been stolen from the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) website and transferred to multiple beneficiaries using fake Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) keys, they said.
