He made a similar claim last year saying that his wife, who formerly held a senior position at BharatPe, had paid Rs 1.15 crore in advance tax. The former Shark also took a dig at other venture capital partners, questioning them on how much tax they have paid in India so far.He wrote, ”My wife Madhuri Jain Grover submitted ₹1.15 crores advance tax just now. She has been among the highest individual female taxpayers in India for many years. How many VC partners do you think paid as much tax in India? Not many – most of them pay zero tax being in Sing / Dubai.”Here’s the tweet:My wife Madhuri Jain Grover submitted ₹1.15 crores advance tax just now.
