However, Nokia spokesperson in an email statement said, “Nokia can confirm that its Indian facilities were visited by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence on Wednesday.”

Nokia extended its full cooperation to the authorities, duly responding to all queries raised and extending its full support to help them during their visit.

The visit of DRI officials is significant considering that the process of Microsoft acquiring Nokia globally, including the plant here, is nearing completion.
