Delhi HC retrains IT dept from taking coercive action against NDTV
MUMBAI: In a major relief for NDTV, the Delhi High Court has directed the Income Tax (I-T) department not to take any coercive step against the media house in connection with a Rs 428-crore demand raised by the authority.
The Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT) had recently upheld the department’s tax demand notice against the media company, following which the latter moved the Delhi High Court to restrain the authorities from taking any coercive action.
According to a PTI report, a bench of justices S Muralidhar and Pratibha M Singh said it was ‘satisfied’ that there was a prima facie case in favour of NDTV.
The court also issued notice to the I-T department and sought its reply on the television channel’s plea challenging the demand order of 26 July and a show-cause notice of the same day for failure to pay the amount in time.
The next date of hearing is 21 August.
