Vodafone in a letter to the Revenue Department dated March 13 had stated they saw no merit in reviewing the matter of conciliation in the Rs 20,000-crore capital gains tax dispute case after receipt of the decision of the ITAT.
It had further said that the only body capable of resolving the issue would be an arbitration panel constituted according to the Bilateral Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (BIPA).
Following the amendment to the Tax laws, the authorities issued a letter to Vodafone International Holdings BV stating that the company was required to pay tax demand of about Rs 11,217 crore along with interest.
Amendment to Income-tax Act with retrospective effect made by the UPA government in 2012 to protect revenue had evoked sharp reactions from domestic as well as global investors.
On the Vodafone notice, Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had recently said: "We will look into it. Our (BJP) manifesto has been very specific that we want a stable regime where those who invest in India may not have to face uncertainty."
