Govt rejects Kollywood’s request to cancel tax

 

Hopes of Tamil film industry were shattered on Monday, when state information minister Kadambur Raju stated that there are no plans to rollback the local body entertainment tax.

Speaking to reporters in Chennai, he said the additional tax would not be rolled back as it would not affect the film industry in any way.

However, he said if the industry approaches the government with a request (to reduce or withdraw tax), it would be considered.

Already, protesting the new tax, multiplexes have downed shutters, while Producers Council has stopped
the release of new films.

Meanwhile on Saturday, Tamil Nadu government issued an order, allowing cinema halls across the
state to increase ticket prices by 25 per cent.
