SC dismisses ex-ASG Biswajit Bhattacharya’s Vodafone tax dues PIL

Former additional solicitor general (ASG) Biswajit Bhattacharya was rebuked by Supreme Court justices HL Dattu and SA Bobde as their bench dismissed his PIL against Vodafone, reported the Mint.

Bhattacharya had claimed “subversion of the rule of law” by not enforcing the retrospective amendment to the Income Tax Act 1961, leading to Rs 20,000 crore of dues payable by Vodafone, added Mint.

“You are an experienced person,” the bench told tax expert Bhattacharya adding that such a PIL could not be filed with adducing the Income Tax department’s evidence.
