Let us tell you that before this, in the year 2014, the Chinese mobile company Xiaomi India started its business in India in the year 2014 and started sending money to India from the year 2015. The company has remitted foreign exchange equivalent to Rs 5551.27 crore in the guise of royalty to three foreign based entities. The surprising thing here is that Xiaomi did not take advantage of any kind of service from these three companies. In these three companies, an organization of Xiaomi Group is also included. In the name of royalty, such a huge amount was sent on the instructions of the organizations of Xiaomi Group. In this, the amount remitted to the other two US based unrelated entities was also for the ultimate benefit of the Xiaomi group entities.
