Following the report, senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh had accused Vivek Doval of tax evasion and had sought the RBI to make public details of FDI inflows from Cayman islands since demonetisation, which he claimed were to the tune of Rs 8,300 crore during 2017-18 and equalled total funds flowing into India between 2000 to 2017.
