Audi dealer escapes claim on its showroom

An Audi dealer who'd failed to pay local taxes in Mumbai, India, came close to losing its showroom to local authorities.

Last week officials from Nagpur Municipal Corporation took legal action to 'attach' the Mumbai Audi showroom of Aadya Motor Car Company Pvt after it had failed to respond to deadlines for payment of taxes.

Last Friday, with NMC officials on site, Aadya Motor Car Company Pvt deposited more than 15million rupees (approx £150,000) with Nagpur High Court as the penalty for alleged evasion of octroi, a local tax.

In 2012 NMC assistant commissioner Miland Meshram found 21 Audi cars were sold in the city without paying octroi. At the time there was no Audi showroom in the city, reported Times Of India.
