The longest running saga in the Indian tax history may well be at an end. After years of re-negotiations, the over three-decade-old tax treaty between India and Mauritius has finally been amended to remove the capital gains exemption, albeit in a phased manner. Ordinarily, one would have expected investors to cry foul, the markets to react violently (like it did in early years of the last decade when the availability of treaty was called into question) and the overall reaction to be very negative.
