1,000 cinema halls shut in Tamil Nadu against 30% local tax

Tamil Nadu

Chennai: Around 1,000 cinema houses in Tamil Nadu have cancelled screenings against the imposition of 30 per cent local body tax apart from additional tariffs under the new GST regime on film trade.

They have cancelled screenings and shut halls demanding that the municipal tax be withdrawn. They want only a single GST tax, saying both together will be an unaffordable 60 per cent.

This will mean curtains in cinema halls at least for now for 10 Tamil films that released in the past two weeks in Tamil Nadu – the only state in the country that has announced a separate tax in addition to GST.

Tamil Nadu Cinema Theatre Owners Federation president Abirami Ramanathan on Sunday evening announced that cinema hall owners would proceed with the strike – to the agony of the producers of recently-released films.
