Customs, Excise and Service Tax Appellate Tribunal (CESTAT) has ordered Bharti airtel to pay approximately Rs 700 crore for evading customs duty. The Hindu Business Line reports that while importing the telecom equipment, airtel undervalued its cost. In fact, the company claimed that the equipment was being shipped without software to effectively reduce its evaluation. In reality, the hardware was preloaded with the required software, while the software component imported separately was in fact a decoy.

They were one of the 1930 applicants to apply for .airtel domain by paying $185000 . And they can recover this 700 cr in a single day. Their Subscriber base is 232 million. So , Re 1 or 2 deduction from all and 700 cr will be recovered ;)
