5- Paradise papers: Will follow same investigation process as did in Panama, says Jaitley

"The investigation is going on and notices have been sent to the people whose names were figured in the Panama Papers. There are some people whose accounts are illegal. An action is being taken against such people. Some people have said that this is our legal transaction and we have done it with the permission from the RBI. Some people say that this money belongs to the NRIs. So on the basis of merit, we consider these defences. The process, which we had followed at the time of Panama, will be followed in Paradise. All the cases will be considered on the basis of individual merit," Jaitley told the media.
