#1
New Delhi, Feb 3 (PTI) The Supreme Court today set aside the order of the Kerala High Court and asked it to decide afresh on levy of luxury tax on Direct-to-Home (DTH) services and local cable operators by the state government.

A bench comprising justices Mukundakam Sharma and A R Dave set aside the order passed by the high court on August 27, 2009, asking it to consider it afresh.
The apex court order came after the cable operators in the state including Asianet Satellite submitted that the high court ignored their submission and passed orders without going into it.

The cable operators, whose subscriber base is above 7,500 have to pay luxury tax of Rs 5 per connection. They are opposing the levy contending that they are already paying service tax and there should not be a double taxation.

They had further alleged that the state government was discriminating between the cable operators and the DTH service providers.

Consenting to it, the apex court said, "although such issue was raised before the high court, it failed to find out and gave decision."

It further said it was a "relevant issue and same was not addressed by the high court".

Prior to 2010, the DTH operators were not paying any levy. After, 2010, the Kerala government had imposed levy of two per cent on the DTH service providers.
