"It will be applicable for five years beginning assessment year 2013/14," Bose told reporters.
The government later issued a statement laying out the new rules. (http://link.reuters.com/wyx23v)

India has targeted several multinational companies for tax audits on transfer pricing in recent years, but has widened the scope of its investigations since last year, tax officials have said.
