Along with Aamir, eight other entities have failed to pay the penalties imposed on them
The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has decided to initiate recovery proceedings against Aamir Khan and eight other entities who have failed to pay penalties imposed on them. These penalties, which together amount to Rs 2.17 crore, have not been paid despite there being no appeal filed or appeal having been dismissed, the CCI said while publishing a list of these defaulters.
The regulator added that it will initiate recovery proceedings against Aamir Khan, two film producers associations and six others for failing to pay penalties imposed on them.
The penalty pending against the Dhoom:3 actor amounted to Rs 1 lakh only, which was imposed as part of an order passed against 27 film producers on May 25, 2011 in a case related to anti-competition practices by filmmakers. CCI added that they would take appropriate action against the other entities.
