The Union Cabinet is likely to take up the Vodafone tax case issue next week.
Speaking to reporters here on Thursday, Finance Minister P Chidambaram said that the Rs 11, 200 crore tax dispute may be considered by the Cabinet next week.
“Not today. Probably next week,” Chidambaram said when journalists asked whether the Vodafone tax case would feature in the Cabinet’s agenda on Thursday.
The Finance Minister had earlier said that the fate of the Vodafone case and similar cases, like that of Shell, would be decided by the Cabinet after considering the opinion of Attorney General G E Vahanvati. “As far as Vodafone is concerned they had written to us proposing conciliation. We have written back saying that ‘yes, your request will be considered by the competent authority’. So the matter will go to the Cabinet,” he had said.
