Sources said that the meeting was to understand the way the new NDA government views the tax case and gauge how it wants to proceed with it. “It was a courtesy call. We did not discuss specific issues. But we got the impression that they (Vodafone) are of the view nothing is cast in stone,” said a person aware about Vodafone’s discussions with the finance ministry officials.
Mayaram said Vodafone executives came to discuss their further investment possibilities in India. “They said they are very enthused by the way the new government has set policy priorities. Once Vodafone finalises their investment plans, they would share them with us,” Mayaram told FE.
