Vodafone celebrates tax victory in India

20 January 2012 Last updated at 13:32 GMT

India's highest court has ruled that Vodafone is not liable for taxes and penalties amounting to $4.4bn (£2.8bn).

The judgement could relieve pressure on other foreign companies facing similar tax investigations in India.

The case centred on Vodafone's $11bn acquisition of the Indian assets of China's Hutchison Telecommunications in 2007.
