The Moot Court Society of National Law School of India University, Bangalore, in association with Tax India Online (TIOL), is organising the 1st NLS-TIOL Taxation Law Conference on 6th January, 2013. The Conference seeks to trace out the developments since the proposed introduction of General Anti-Avoidance Rule in the Finance Act, 2012. While the Shome Committee has made certain recommendations that provide clarity with respect to the application of GAAR, some recommendations are a cause for concern. Further, the manner in which the GAAR is to be applied in India, under the Income Tax Act and under the proposed Direct Taxes Code, remains controversial and must be debated.

The Conference will witness a congregation of persons of eminence from the Legal and Accounting fields – Mr. Mohan Parasaran, Additional Solictor General of India, Mr. P.K. Prasad, Director of Income Tax (International Taxation), Bangalore, Mr. Nishith Desai, Founder, Nishith Desai & Associates, Mr. Nageswar Rao, Partner, PDS Legal, Mr. Padam Chand Kincha, Partner, M/s H C Khincha & Co, Bangalore and Mr. Rupesh Jain, Partner, Vaish Associates. The session will be Moderated by Mr. Mihir Naniwadekar, Advocate, Bombay High Court.

The Conference will be organised on Sunday, 6th January, 2013 at Vivanta by Taj, Bangalore. Registration Fee for the Conference is Rs. 1000 for Professionals and Rs. 200 for Students.
