Neighborhood News Desk/MUMBAI: Supreme Court on Thursday allowed Britain’s Vodafone to initiate a second arbitration process under an India-UK investment pact over New Delhi’s tax demand for more than $2 billion arising out of a deal that was struck a decade ago.

Vodafone, world’s second-largest mobile operator, entered India in 2007 by acquiring Hutchison Whampoa’s wireless assets. Separately, Vodafone has already initiated an arbitration process under India’s investment pact with the Netherlands.
