SC defers Vodafone hearing to November 15

business Updated: Oct 25, 2010 12:04 IST

The Supreme Court has deferred the hearing of Vodafone's $2.5 billion tax case to November 15, Harish Salve, a lawyer for the telecom firm, told reporters on Monday.

Vodafone, fighting a tax bill in India over its 2007 purchase of Hutchison Whampoa Ltd's mobile business in the country, had appealed to the Supreme Court challenging a lower court order that Indian tax authorities had jurisdiction over tax bills in cross-border deals.

The tax office last week asked Vodafone to pay 112.18 billion rupees ($2.53 billion) within 30 days, but the British firm said it "strongly disagrees" with the calculation.
