GST levy: No film shows in Tamil Nadu from Friday, says producers council

Noting that film producers were facing difficulties after the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax from July 1, the council in a statement said the announcement of levying an additional 10 per cent local body tax has come as a 'shock' to the industry. There's been a 28 per cent GST on films.
"The council has already expressed its stand on the issue during various meetings with government officials," it said. Without regularising the entrance tickets for a long time, charging 10 per cent local body tax would lead to confusion among film producers, it said. The council said it decided in a meeting today to request the government to withdraw the local body tax, and also that no new Tamil movie would be released from Friday. Theatres across the state had remained shut for a few days following the implementation of the GST in July. They opened following a request by the government and the announcement to form a committee to look into their demands.
