4. Each member responds promptly to any specific request from another member for information regarding any of its general or international measures covered in paragraph 1. Each member also establishes one or more investigative bodies to provide specific information to other members who request them on all these issues and on the issues subject to the notification obligation in paragraph 3. These investigative bodies will be created within two years of the entry into force of the WTO agreement (known as the WTO agreement in this agreement). For the various members of developing countries, it may be agreed that there is some flexibility as to how long these investigative bodies should be established. Applications should not be custodians of laws and regulations. The stamp duty charged can range up to two rupees for every thousand rupees of the monetary value indicated in the agreement. A BTA agreement falls directly under Section 5, point h) (h) (h) a) of the BS Act. Despite the general nature of the description in section 5, point h) h), the BS Act maintained a residual regime covered by section 5, point h) B), which imposes INR Hundred stamp duty (100) with respect to agreements not provided elsewhere. Since Article 5 H) H) specifies the instrument, a VZTa exported to the State of Maharashtra should be duly stamped in accordance with Article 5, point h) (h) (a) (a) and not Article 5, point h) b).

It is common practice for a BTA to be structured as a “sale agreement.” In such cases, the agreement provides a general framework under which the company is transferred to the reference date. The BTA as such cannot contemplate any transfer and require the completion of a “promotional act” [see end note 5] on or before the completion date of the transfer. However, there are cases in which the agreement contains recitals concerning the payment of the consideration, the transfer of the property to the property and the remittances of those assets. In such cases, the BTA is the colour of a “transportation” and stamp duty is levied accordingly. 5. Where a member intends, at the time of the conclusion, of the extension or substantial modification of an agreement covered in paragraph 1, to withdraw or amend a specific obligation contrary to the conditions set out in its timetable, he must inform at least 90 days in advance of this amendment or withdrawal and the procedure provided in paragraphs 2, 3 and 4 of Article XXI applies. 3. (a) In the absence of an agreement between the acting member and a concerned member before the expiry of the negotiation period for negotiations, the member concerned may refer the matter to arbitration proceedings.

Any member concerned who wishes to assert a right that he may have to obtain compensation must participate in the arbitration. At Turkey`s request, NATO has implemented collective defence measures three times: in 1991 with the deployment of Patriot missiles during the Gulf War, in 2003 with the agreement on a set of defence measures and the implementation of Operation Display-Dissuasion during the Iraq crisis and in 2012 in response to the situation in Syria with the deployment of Patriot missiles. 3. A member may not invoke Article XVII under this article or Article XXIII with respect to a measure taken by another member within the scope of an international convention between them concerning the prevention of double taxation. In the event of disagreement among MEPs as to whether a measure falls within the scope of such an agreement between them, it is open to both members to refer the matter to the Trade in Services Council. (11) The Commission refers the matter to arbitration.
