The bill was passed by the Parliament in the recently concluded Monsoon Session. It has done away with the contentious retrospective tax demand provisions. This bill also addresses the inconsistencies with the taxation laws, especially with the tax demands. To bring clarity around the taxations laws, it was crucial to bring this amendment. These amendments will also ease investors apprehensions about investing in India.
India’s dispute with Vodafone and Cairn Energy for tax demands also highlighted the issue of retrospective taxation in India. This bill amends the Income Tax Act, 1961, and provides that no tax demand shall be raised in future on basis of these retrospective amendments. These demands were for any indirect transfer of Indian assets if the transaction was undertaken before May 28, 2012.
