Sameer Wankhade, Deputy Commissioner, Service Tax, confirmed the development but refused to divulge further details.
     
Sources in the department said officials visited the offices of Verma's company, 'Ram Gopal Film Factory', on Wednesday and were in the process of recording his statement.
     
"We are looking for the projects that he undertook since assessment year 2010," said a source, adding that only after this exercise it would be known if Verma had any tax liability, and if he had evaded tax.
     
Film directors are liable to pay the service tax.
     
As Verma also directs Telegu films, officials had sought some documents from Hyderabad as well, sources said.
