Help Madras High Court stays Entertainment Tax levy on DTH
Advertisement
#1
The Madras High Court has stayed a Tamil Nadu government decision to levy 30 per cent entertainment tax on direct-to-home services in the state. A single-judge bench issued the order in response to a petition filed by Dish TV, the country’s largest DTH operator.

The Noida-based satellite television firm was aggrieved about a Bill the state administration recently passed, levying a 30 per cent entertainment tax on DTH operators from September 27 this year. That led Dish TV to move court, contending that such levy was discriminatory. It argued that the cable network was exempt from such entertainment tax levy — and claimed that the legislation was in violation of Article 14 of the country’s constitution.
