Tamil Nadu Government has announced additional 10% tax for theaters screening new Tamil movies in Greater Chennai Corporation area. But it’s still unclear whether the tax will be followed for other areas in Tamil Nadu. The 10% tax is above the already collected GST imposed by the Central Government.
Sources say that Tamil Film Producers Council and the entire industry are disappointed with this move by Tamil Nadu Government. An urgent press meet has been announced by Tamil Film Producers Council’s President Vishal, who will be revealing the industry’s future plans in handling this additional tax announced by the Tamil Nadu Government.
