Chennai: The Madras high court has directed the exhibitors of Tamil film Kochadaiiyaan, starring superstar Rajinikanth, not to collect any tax for which the exemption has been granted by the state government. Passing orders on a PIL from advocate S. Muthiah, a division bench comprising Justices M. M. Sundresh and R. Mahadevan said admittedly, the exemption of tax granted stands valid as of today.

Therefore, by way of the order impugned, exemption has been granted towards the payment of entertainment tax. Therefore, the exhibitors cannot demand and collect the said amount from the general public, who go to see the movie.

 

“In such view of the matter, we pass an interim order, directing the respondents (state government and commissioner of commercial taxes and registration) as well as the agents including the exhibitors not to collect any tax for which the exemption has been granted by the order impugned”, the bench added.
