The Indian Express

The tax department decided to reopen Rahul's assessment for 2011-12 as he reportedly did not disclose that he was a director in Young Indian Pvt Ltd since 2010. The Delhi High Court on Wednesday refused to grant any relief to Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who has challenged the reopening of his tax assessment for 2011-12 by the income tax department for allegedly not disclosing that he was a director in Young Indian Pvt Ltd (YI) - an accused in the National Herald misappropriation of assets case. After Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Tushar Mehta opposed issuance of any interim order by the court, a bench of Justices S Ravindra Bhat and A K Chawla listed the matter for further hearing on August 14. The bench said it would determine whether Rahul was under any obligation to disclose his status as a director in Young Indian.
