Weeks after the government offered conciliation to settle the long-pending tax dispute with Vodafone India, chairman Analjit Singh has said the company is keen to reach an amicable settlement.

"I hope to meet the (finance minister) again early next week... Vodafone is highly desirous and keen to settle the tax matter," Singh said. He was speaking to reporters after his meeting with finance minister. This is the first time that a top official from Vodafone has met finance minister P Chidambaram, after the government decided to settle the R11,217-crore tax issue through conciliation.
