  • INTERNATIONAL TRDAE AND FINANCE Index

  • Cross border Investments and GAAR

  • Foreign institutional investors (FIIs), which are still in a quandary over the possible tax implications of General Anti Avoidance Rules (GAAR), have shot off another letter to the Finance Minister, urging him to exempt cross-border portfolio investments from the provisions of the proposed regulations and the indirect transfer rules to avoid major disruptions in the Indian market.

  • Exemption of cross-border portfolio investments would permit FIIs to continue to play their supportive role in the Indian economy uninterrupted, while also continuing to pay taxes in line with internationally accepted practice. Only practical solution to these issues is an unequivocal exemption for cross-border portfolio investments in Indian securities from both the GAAR and the indirect transfer rules.

  • If the tax uncertainties were not resolved quickly, FIIs could proceed to liquidate their India investments and such a disorderly dissolution of large positions held by these overseas investors could seriously disrupt the Indian markets
