The customs department has alleged that Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (ADAG) company Ammolite Holdings has violated the Customs Act by “smuggling in” a luxurious yacht, which is believed to be a gift by Anil to his wife.

“The imported luxury yacht ‘Tian’ was imported in contravention of Section 111(m) of the Customs Act, hence is liable for confiscation,” Assistant Commissioner of Customs SR Vichare stated in reply to a petition filed by Ammolite Holdings challenging seizure of the yacht.

The court has given time to ADAG until on Friday to reply to the allegation.
