In a statement to the publication, Nokia India said that it was disappointed with the IT commissioner's judgment and is now considering all viable options, including taking back the case to the Delhi High Court. The company also pointed out that Finland's finance ministry had launched a mutual agreement procedure with its Indian counterpart under the bilateral Double Taxation Avoidance agreement to resolve this issue, however the company will now take decisive action to protect its interests in the country. For the uninitiated, Double taxation is the levying of tax by two or more jurisdictions on the same declared income which is often mitigated by tax treaties between countries.
