NEW DELHI, India - Sunday's 2013  Indian Grand Prix will go ahead as scheduled after the country's top court deferred hearing in a case seeking its cancellation over tax issues to next week.

A court official told Reuters on Friday: "The case will now be heard next week."

The Supreme Court decided to hear the case after campaigner Amit Kumar accused race promoters Jaypee Sports International (JPSI) of not paying entertainment taxes in full for the 2012 event and demanded the cancellation of Sunday's race.

Kumar had filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in 2011 arguing Formula 1 was not a sport but entertainment and should not be exempted from entertainment taxes.

JPSI spokesman Askari Zaidi had dismissed Kumar's claims, saying the promoters had deposited the money they were asked to pay.

The Indian Grand Prix has been dropped from the 2014 calendar but the promoters are optimistic of a return in 2015.
