TN to cut entertainment tax by two per cent

Seeking compensation of Rs 5 lakh to the families of each of the deceased petitioner K. K. Ramesh from Madurai said that even while the situation was alarming state government was suppressing the facts and not revealing the truth to the public

The Multiplex Association of India had gone off for a strike earlier this month, against the Local Body Entertainment Tax (LBET) which worked under the Chennai government, and which has caused much grief and loss for the Tamil film Industry.

The officials also said the team will analyse the factors leading to the rise in dengue cases in the state. The Tamil Nadu Film Producers' Council has announced it would not release any movies from October 6, which pointed at a crisis just before Diwali releases. The 20 percent local body tax on non-Tamil films, however, is still in place. "To which they said it was under consideration", TFPC President Vishal told the media after the meeting with the chief minister. The total ticket price will be approximately around Rs 230. After the government announcement, which came after several days of negotiation between the producers council and theatres, the council said that the movies will be released on Diwali as planned.

According to new regulations, multiplexes in Tamil Nadu can charge a maximum of Rs 150 and a minimum of Rs 50, AC single screens can charge a maximum of Rs 100 and a minimum of Rs 40, while non-AC single screens can charge a maximum of Rs 80 and a minimum of Rs 30.
