After hearing objections from a government counsel, the court said the case will next be heard on April 6.
ByteDance, which has said it disagrees with the Indian tax authority’s decision, said in a statement late on Wednesday it was confident in its legal position and was looking forward to a ruling by the court.
ByteDance in January cut its Indian workforce after New Delhi retained a ban on its popular video app TikTok, first prohibited last year following a border clash between India and China. China has repeatedly criticised India’s move.
ByteDance still has around 1,300 employees in India, most of whom service its overseas operations, including work on activities such as content moderation.
Authorities ordered ByteDance India’s accounts at Citibank and HSBC to be blocked this month because of alleged evasion of certain taxes in online advertising dealings between the ByteDance unit in India and its parent entity in Singapore, TikTok Pte Ltd, Reuters reported.
Last year, Indian tax authorities inspected documents at ByteDance’s office and questioned some executives in relation to the advertising and other transactions with its parent entity.
