Mumbai: An Bombay high court on Thursday rescheduled hearing of Vodafone’s appeal against the country’s tax department to 2 August, a Vodafone representative said.
The Bombay high court gave a new date after the counsel for the Indian tax office asked for adjournment of the matter, the representative said in a statement to Reuters.
Vodafone, fighting a tax bill in India from its 2007 purchase of Hutchison Whampoa Ltd’s mobile business in the country, had filed an appeal with the Bombay court in June challenging the tax department’s jurisdiction over the tax bill.
Vodafone has not said how much the authorities were seeking, but a person with knowledge of the matter has said it was about Rs1,200 crore.
