NEW DELHI, July 25 India's new finance minister
said on Friday he was preparing to take a final decision on the
controversial rules on tax avoidance introduced by the previous
government, which were deferred by two years.
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley did not give a timeline for
the decision or more details.
Introduced in 2012, the General Anti-Avoidance Rules (GAAR),
were aimed at companies routing money through tax havens such as
Mauritius, but implementation was delayed after an uproar from
investors who feared harassment from tax authorities.
