The Tax department will waive interest liability if the principal demand of capital gains tax is paid by companies like Cairn India and Vodafone. CBDT issued a circular for waiver of interest in disputed-tax demand in different scenarios. In cases where tax-liability arose because of retrospective-amendment to the law or a court ruling, the interest payable on the demand will be waived, it said.
