Jet Airways on Friday said Income Tax officials have been conducting survey of its premises since 19 September.

On Wednesday, sources said the I-T Department is inspecting the books to ascertain whether there have been falsification of accounts, suspicious dealings and other possible violations.

In a regulatory filing Friday, the carrier said I-T officials are conducting a survey of the premises of the company since 19 September.

"The company is fully cooperating with the authorities and is responding to the queries by the Income Tax authorities," it said.

The airline reported a net loss of Rs 1,323 crore for the June quarter on 27 August. The carrier is also under the regulatory lens for deferring the results, which were initially scheduled to be announced on 9 August.
