Rajinikanth pays property tax for his Chennai marriage hall
Chennai: South Superstar Rajinikanth on Friday paid a property tax of ₹ 6.39 lakh for the second half-year of 2020-21 for his marriage hall in Chennai to the Greater Chennai Corporation.
A day after remitting Rs 6.56 lakh property tax, including penalty, for the first half year (2020-21) for his Raghavendra Mandapam, the actor has now paid ₹ 6,39,846 as well to the civic body which is the property tax for the year’s second six months.
In a press release on Thursday, the Greater Chennai Corporation confirmed the payment of the property tax by the actor totalling an amount Rs 6,56,000 (which includes the late pay penalty).
The actor had filed a writ petition against the property tax notice issued by Chennai Corporation in the Madras High Court. The writ petition was dismissed on Wednesday based on a withdrawal petition filed by the actor’s counsel. The Judge had told Rajinikanth’s counsel (and other litigants repeatedly) to not waste judicial time by filing cases immediately after sending representations to officials concerned.
