2 Income Tax Cases

a) In the case of an erstwhile subsidiary of the Company, Max Telecom Ventures Limited ("MTVL") (since merged with the Company with effect from December 1, 2005), a demand of Rs. 9503.93 Lacs (Previous year Rs. 9503.93 Lacs) was raised by the Income Tax Authorities for the Assessment Year 1998-99 in connection with capital gains realized by MTVL from the sale of shares of Hutchison Max Telecom Limited ("HMTL") by holding that the sale transaction pertains to previous year relevant to assessment year 1998-99 and by denying exemption under section 10(23G) of the Income Tax Act, 1961 ("the Act"). On appeal by MTVL, the CIT (Appeals), while holding that the sale transaction pertains to previous period relevant to assessment year 1998-99, quashed the order of the Assessing Officer regarding denial of exemption under section 10(23G) and the demand was cancelled. The Tax Authorities filed an appeal against this order with the Income- Tax Appellate Tribunal ("ITAT") which is pending as on date.

Subsequently, in the next assessment year i.e. 1999-00, the above-mentioned transaction was once again sought to be taxed both as capital gains and under a different head of income (i.e., business income) on a protective basis by the Assessing Officer as MTVL had asked the Tax Authorities to treat the transaction as that arising in Assessment Year 1999-00 and not in Assessment Year 1998-99. This, along with a few other additions, resulted in creation of a further demand of Rs. 24993.19 Lacs which included the demand of Rs. 24368.00 Lacs on protective basis. On appeal by MTVL, the CIT (Appeals) decided in favor of MTVL and the demand was cancelled. The Tax Authorities have filed appeal against ITAT, which appeal is pending as on date.

MTVL had also filed an appeal before ITAT for assessment year 1998-99 contending that the aforesaid sale transaction pertains to Previous Period relevant to assessment year 1999-2000. This appeal had been disposed off by ITAT by applying a circular of Tax Department applicable only to capital gains and holding, as a result, that the transaction of sale of shares pertains to previous period relevant to assessment year 1998-99. However, the Tax Authorities filed a petition before the ITAT requesting a review of the said order of the ITAT on the ground that all the three appeals pertaining to the aforesaid sale transaction should have been clubbed and heard together. The said petition of the Department was accepted by the ITAT which recalled its earlier order in the Companys appeal for Assessment year 1998-99. Aggrieved, the Company filed a writ petition to the Honble High Court of Punjab and Haryana challenging the above action of ITAT on the ground that the same was beyond jurisdiction. The Honble High Court of Punjab and Haryana has admitted the writ petition and stayed the operations of the order of ITAT accepting the petition filed by the Department. The ITAT has in the meanwhile adjourned sine-die all the three appeals pending operation of the stay imposed by the Honble High Court (HC). The Department in turn had moved in SLP to Honble Supreme Court against the stay granted by Honble HC. The said SLP has now been dismissed by the Honble Supreme Court. However, the Honble Supreme Court has instructed the Honble HC to expeditiously dispose the writ petition filed by MTVL.

b) Again, in the case of the erstwhile subsidiary of the Company, Max Telecom Ventures Limited ("MTVL") (since merged with the Company with effect from December 1, 2005), a demand of Rs.15585.17 lacs, has been raised by the Income Tax Authorities for the Assessment Year 2006-07 in connection with capital gains realized by MTVL from the sale of remaining shares of Hutchison Max Telecom Limited ("HMTL") by holding the gains from sale transaction to be in the nature of business income and not capital gains and as a consequence denying exemption under section 10(23G) of the Act. MTVL has filed an appeal before CIT (Appeals) against the said order. Further, on application by MTVL, the entire outstanding demand of Rs 15585.17 lacs has been stayed by the Tax Authorities till the disposal of first appeal by CIT (Appeals).
