During 2011-12, Income Tax authorities reopened the assessment for financial years 2007-08 and 2008-09 including its incomes of Rs 2,517.21 crore and Rs 278.03 crore respectively, alleging "under invoicing of exports" and raised tax demand notices for Rs 1255.83 crore and Rs 102.85 crore for those years.

Similarly, last year tax men reopened the company's accounts of assessment years 2006-07 and 2009-10 and raised tax demand notices for Rs 177.90 crore and Rs 94.36 crore for the respective years, sources said.

The NMDC has contested these allegations stating that all transactions are transparent as well as routed through bank accounts and filed appeals before appellate authorities, they said.

"Currently, the issue about assessment years 2006-07 and 2009-10 is pending before the Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeals) and the matter related to 2007-08 and 2008-09 is pending before the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal, Hyderabad," sources told PTI.

According to the NMDC, it exported 3.26 million tonnes, 3.78 million tonnes, 3.87 million tonnes and 3.43 million tonnes during 2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10 respectively, and the total value of exports during those four years have been recorded as Rs 4,382.52 crore.

As per accounting statements issued by the NMDC, pending disposal of the appeals, it paid an amount of Rs 1134.27 crore and Rs 341.42 crore during 2012-13 and 2011-12 respectively to Income Tax authorities and these were shown as "amounts recoverable" from the department and the balance was shown as the disputed amount of Rs 496.67 crore.

"We believe that issues with the Income Tax Department will be settled before end of the year," sources said.
