GAAR deferred to April 2016: Chidambaram
Finance minister P Chidambaram on Monday said that the General Anti Avoidance Rules, more popularly known as GAAR has been deferred to April 2016.

GAAR, is a tax provision that enables tax foreign investments.

Chidambaram said that the government has accepted major recommendations of the Shome Committee on GAAR and went on to clarify that a show-cause notice would follow the invocation of GAAR.

It may be recalled that GAAR was proposed by the then Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee in the 2012-13 budget with a view to preventing tax evasion through foreign investments. This worried foreign funds, particularly those investing through P-Notes in India.

The government later appointed a committee headed by tax expert Parthasarthi Shome to look into their concerns.
