Court rules this weekend’s Indian GP can go ahead 25 October, 2013 This weekend’s Formula 1Indian Grand Prix will go ahead as scheduled after the country’s top court deferred hearing a case seeking its cancellation over tax issues until next Friday. The Supreme Court decided to hear the case after campaigner Amit Kumar accused race promoters Jaypee Sports International (JPSI) of not paying entertainment taxes in full for the 2012 event and demanded the cancellation of Sunday’s race. “The case will come up for hearing on Friday,” Kumar’s lawyer Sanjiv Sen told Reuters. Kumar had filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in 2011 arguing that Formula 1 is not a sport but entertainment and should not be exempted from entertainment taxes. JPSI spokesman Askari Zaidi dismissed Kumar’s claims, saying the promoters had deposited the money they were asked to pay. The Indian Grand Prix has been dropped from next year’s calendar but the promoters are optimistic of a return in 2015. (Reuters) Subbed by AJN.
