Skylight Hospitality Private Limited, a company promoted by Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, failed to get relief from the Punjab and Haryana high court in a controversy over VAT notice slapped by the Haryana government. The matter pertains to Shikohpur land deal in Gurgaon between Skylight and DLF.

The high court on Tuesday disposed of the petition after the Haryana government informed the court that all the documents sought by the petitioner firm had been already provided.

The high court had issued a notice to the Haryana government on a petition file by Skylight Hospitality.

It had claimed that after the notice was served, firm made representations to the excise and taxation department to provide record on the basis of which assessment was made. But it failed to get the documents.

Skylight Hospitality has challenged a notice of October 12, 2015 by the excise department. The sale deed for the 3.53-acre land deal between Vadra’s firm and DLF Limited took place on the payment of stamp duty and other statutory charges in 2012. The firm had accused BJP government in Haryana of “systematic vendetta” without referring to Vadra, one of the directors.
