The protocol updates the existing framework of exchange of tax-related information to latest international standard which will help curb tax evasion and tax avoidance between the two countries and will also enable mutual assistance in collection of taxes.
The protocol entered into force in India on September 7, 2017, and has been notified in the official gazette on November 2, 2017. The convention between the two countries came into force in December 1986 and was amended through a first protocol in 1997 and a second protocol in 2000.
