The Bombay High Court, on Thursday, directed the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT) to hear the Rs.3,700-crore transfer pricing tax demand dispute, involving Vodafone India Services, on a daily basis from February 21.

The division bench of Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice M. S. Sanklecha advanced the hearing date from March 21 to February 21, and directed the tribunal to hear and decide the matter expeditiously.

The court also asked Vodafone and the Income Tax department not to seek any adjournments during the hearings.

The order was passed on a petition filed by the IT department challenging an interim order of the tribunal staying the Rs 3,700 crore tax demand against Vodafone India.
