New Delhi, Apr 7: Kingfisher Chairman Vijay Mallya will have to pay service tax dues worth Rs 9 crore by Saturday, Apr 7. If he fails to make the payment on time, the income tax department may freeze the Kingfisher's bank accounts again.
The I-T authorities had defrozen the accounts of the debt-ridden airlines Kingfisher in February after Mallya paid dues worth Rs 20 crore.
The employees had threatened to go on strike against the airline if the management failed to pay them their due salaries. However, after a meeting with Vijay Mallya, the Kingfisher staff on Apr 4 received part of their pending salaries after a long wait of four months.
