Nokia today offered to produce relevant documents to the Commercial Tax Department to prove that it has been exporting handsets made at its plant in Sriperumbudur, to the west of Chennai.

The company made this offer during a hearing in the Madras High Court on a case related to a value-added tax claim of Rs 2,400 crore by the Tamil Nadu Government.

The First Bench, which is hearing the case, asked the assessing authority to look into the documents and come back to the court after two weeks.

The Bench said that the appeal filed by Nokia against a single judge order asking the company to pay 10 per cent of the total claim by the tax department will be kept in pending for two weeks.
