    Processing, determination, issuance and encashment of income-tax refund claims is a continuous process and therefore a part of the outstanding refunds would in the normal course also get postponed to next year, Sinha said.

    "An amount of Rs 1,06,499 crore has already been refunded to the taxpayers in the current financial year till March 7, 2015, which is 32.1 per cent higher than the amount refunded during the corresponding period of last financial year and is 17.02 per cent of the gross direct tax collections," he added.

    In reply to a separate question, Sinha said government is committed towards engendering a non-adversarial tax regime.

    Without naming the company, he minister said: "Government has accepted the order of the Bombay High Court in favour of a telecom company in a transfer pricing case after carefully examining the order and finding merit in the same."
