The Delhi High Court order had held both Nokia India and Nokia Corporation jointly responsible for paying taxes and penalty in relation to the company’s Chennai plant. This had raised difficulties in Microsoft’s acquisition of the company.

Nokia had asked for an early settlement owing to the assets transfer that Microsoft would require of it in 2-3 weeks, said the Hindu.

Nokia has told the Bench that the decision to post a minimum deposit of Rs 2,250 crore in tax liabilities was final. This offer was recently turned down by the IT department.

The Supreme Court will resume hearing the case on March 11.
