The Bombay High Court has stayed a Rs 1,500-crore tax demand on Idea Cellular raised in 2010-11 relating to the transfer of some assets by the telecom company to its unit, Aditya Birla Telecom (ABTL), Economic Times reported.

The tax demand followed a slew of similar ones pertaining transfer of assets, including on transfer of telecom towers from Vodafone India's subsidiaries to Indus Towers - a tower joint venture between Idea Cellular, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Group Plc's India unit.
