India's top court defers Vodafone hearing to Nov 15

NEW DELHI, Oct 25 (Reuters) - India’s top court has deferred the hearing of Vodafone’s (VOD.L) $2.5 billion tax case to Nov. 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 0013.HK 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. [ID:nSGE69L0HR] (Reporting by Devidutta Tripathy)
