About 80 online gaming companies are likely to face tax notices for alleged goods and services tax (GST) evasion of Rs 10,000-12,000 crore, according to a senior government official.

The latest action has come after a change in GST rates, to be effective on October 1, for gaming companies.

A GST of 28 per cent has been imposed on the total bet placed at entry level for each gaming session.
