Indian Express stands by report in Aditya Birla Rs1000-crore damage case

The Aditya Birla Group has sued The Indian Express, claiming Rs 1,000 crore from the newspaper for allegedly causing “serious reputational damage” to the Group.

The Aditya Birla Group has alleged that the newspaper carried articles based on the appraisal report of the Income Tax department. It has also demanded a permanent injunction, restraining the newspaper from republishing the piece.

“As one of the largest and most reputed Indian conglomerates, damages of Rs 1,000 crore being claimed by the Aditya Birla Management Corp Pvt Ltd in the said suit can only be said to be the minimum amount of damages, which a group of this stature would be entitled to claim,” the company had said in a case filed on February 5.

Meanwhile, The Indian Express Group stands by the report published in the newspaper on January 15 and 31.

“The Aditya Birla Group is one of India’s most respected corporate houses. Our job as a journalism-first newspaper is to publish facts and our story in question does exactly that. It accurately quotes an Income Tax appraisal report. We stand by our story,” said Anant Goenka, Wholetime Director of Indian Express Group.
