Have accordingly agreed, at the time of signing the said Agreement, on the following provisions which shall constitute an integral part thereof:

"For the purposes of the credit referred to in paragraph (3) (a) of Article XI, there shall be deemed to be paid by the taxpayer the amount by which Indian tax will be reduced by any special incentive measure which may be taken in future under the Indian tax laws (including any future modification involving increase in the scope of the benefit accorded to the taxpayer by the special incentive measures set forth in the sections of the Indian Income-tax Act, 1922 (11 of 1922), as mentioned in paragraph (3) (b) of Article XI), provided that an agreement to that effect is made between the Governments of the Contracting States in respect of that special measure."

IN WITNESS WHEREOF the undersigned Plenipotentiaries have signed the present Protocol.
