India's top court dismisses review plea in Vodafone tax case

By @ibtimes on

India's Supreme Court dismissed on Tuesday the tax office's plea seeking a review of the court's ruling in January that Vodafone Group Plc was not liable to pay any tax on its acquisition of Indian mobile assets, a lawyer on the case said.

Vodafone won a five-year legal battle against the Indian tax authorities in January as the country's top court dismissed a$2.2 billion tax demand raised over the British mobile phone giant's acquisition of Indian mobile assets in 2007.

The tax office last month filed a petition seeking a review of that judgment.
