The central government will defend a notice for arbitration from Vodafone Group Plc in a more than $2 billion tax dispute, finance minister P Chidambaram said on Thursday.

Vodafone said on Wednesday it had filed for an international arbitration against the Indian government, after the two sides failed to find a solution to the long-running tax dispute through talks.
