While the Swiss government did not disclose specific details related to the information and assistance sought by the Indian authorities regarding the two companies and the three individuals, such an 'administrative assistance' follows submission of proof about financial and tax-related wrongdoings and typically involves sharing of information relating to bank account details and other financial data. The concerned companies and the individuals can file an appeal against the decision of Switzerland's Federal Tax Administration (FTA) to provide administrative assistance to India. the tax department of the Swiss government is ready to provide administrative assistance to India in the case of Geodesic Ltd and Half Enterprises Private Limited. Similarly, India's demand for information about Pankaj Kumar Onkar Shrivastav, Prashant Sharad and Kiran Kulkarni associated with Geodesic Limited was accepted. However, the Swiss government did not disclose the information and help of the Indian about the two companies and the three people.
