The Tamil Nadu government has chose to reduce the local entertainment tax by two per cent to eight per cent after talks with the movie industry, a Tamil Film Producers Council official said on Friday.

During last week of September, a local body entertainment tax of 10 per cent was announced by the municipal authorities which was stoutly opposed by film industry bodies.

The standoff between film producers and Tamil Nadu government over the imposition of additional entertainment has come to a conclusion.

Entertainment Tax for non-Tamil films is still 20 per cent.

According to new regulations, multiplexes in Tamil Nadu can charge a maximum of Rs 150 and a minimum of Rs 50, AC single screens can charge a maximum of Rs 100 and a minimum of Rs 40, while non-AC single screens can charge a maximum of Rs 80 and a minimum of Rs 30. With this the long pending local body entertainment tax and GST issue has been solved. The audience should henceforth have to shell out about Rs 206 to watch a Tamil film at multiplexes, while the ticket prices may be more than Rs 220 for other languages. The 20 percent local body tax on non-Tamil films, however, is still in place. The implementation of 7th Pay Commission in the state is set to benefit more than 10 lakh government employees and pensioners in the state.
