Amendment in India-Armenia Double Taxation Avoidance Convention
Jan 29, 2016

A Protocol to amend the existing Double Taxation Avoidance Convention was signed by the Government of India and the Government of Armenia in New Delhi on 27 January.

  • The Protocol amends the Double Taxation Avoidance Convention between India and Armenia that has been in existence since 9th September, 2004. 

  • The Protocol amends the Article on Exchange of Information for tax purposes to bring it in line with the updated provisions in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Model. 

  • The Protocol will enable the two countries to exchange information related to financial and banking transactions under the Double Taxation Avoidance Convention, and thereby facilitate them in addressing tax evasion. 

  • It is also expected to further strengthen the efforts of Government of India in curbing generation of black money. 

The Amending Protocol was signed by Chairman, Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), on behalf of Government of India and by Armen Martirosyan, the Ambassador of Armenia to India, on behalf of the Government of Armenia.
