​3) SC upholds levy of DDT on dividends paid by companies having agricultural income

SUPREME COURT OF INDIA,  Union of India  v.  Tata Tea Co. Ltd.

When the dividend is declared to be distributed and paid to company's shareholder it is not impressed with character of source of income from which it is paid. Therefore, such dividend is not agricultural income and Parliament could not be said to have transgressed the taxing powers of state to tax agricultural income under Entry 46 of the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution and even if such transgression is there, it is only incidental and therefore, DDT is not unconstitutional
