Income deemed to accrue or arise in India - treating the receipt of fees for business support services as Fees for technical services ('FTS') as per Article 12 of the tax treaty between India and Netherlands - Whether services are managerial in nature and hence do not fall within the definition of FTS? - HELD THAT:- We note that identical issue was subject matter of consideration of the ITAT in assessee’s own case [2023 (3) TMI 165 - ITAT DELHI] - The Tribunal had held that the payment received cannot be treated as FTS under Article 12 (5) of India Netherlands DTAA and the addition made is to be deleted.
