Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab is organising a two-credit course Discussing the issues under International Taxation and Double Tax Avoidance Agreements along with their Interpretation.


Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law (RGNUL), Punjab, was established by the State Legislature of Punjab by passing the Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab Act, (Punjab Act No. 12 of 2006). The Act incorporated a University of Law of national stature in Punjab, thereby fulfilling the need for a Centre of Excellence in legal education in the modern era of globalization and liberalization.

About the Course

This course is designed with the intent to equip law students with detailed knowledge of international tax and double tax avoidance agreements. India is emerging as a favourable jurisdiction for multinationals to carry on business. Hence, understanding the issues under international taxation and double tax avoidance agreements and how to interpret them becomes imperative. Students would be introduced to India’s double tax avoidance agreements, the Indian judicial decisions on the interpretation of tax treaties as well as domestic tax law provisions for non-residents.

The course would involve dissecting some of the important Indian as well as foreign judicial cases and deliberating on India's tax treaty policy. Further, a detailed discussion would be taken up on digital tax issues as India has been actively participating in global discussions on the same. The course covers non-resident taxation under Income-tax Act, double tax avoidance agreements and their interpretation, how to read and interpret the tax treaties, digital taxation issues and transfer pricing basics.


All academicians, Practitioners, Researchers, and Students (across disciplines) are invited to join the Credit Course.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, the students would have sufficient knowledge of International tax. The course would enable the students to get insights practically based on case studies discussed, highlighting the issues involved.


The lectures will be conducted in blended mode through online lectures and classroom teaching. Cisco Webex will be used for organising the lectures.
