State withdraws proposal to hike entertainment tax on multiplex ticket prices

The state government which had planned on levying additional entertainment taxes on multiplexes has withdrawn the proposal

The multiplex owners of Maharashtra can finally heave a sigh of relief. The government’s decision to withdraw the proposal of hiking entertainment tax will put an end to the unethical practice of multiplexes charging high ticket prices according to the response a movie generates.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the state cabinet by Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan to discourage multiplexes from increasing the ticket prices, especially on weekends, festive periods and during the screening of blockbuster movies.

The CM said that the existing levy itself was high enough and the raise would hit multiplexes, which are already suffering from a drop in the number of moviegoers.

The new move will certainly benefit the film buffs, who wouldn’t have to shell out more to see their favourite movies in multiplexes.
