Help State hopes to net Rs.150 crore from tax on DTH services, IPL matches
The State government expects to raise Rs.150 crore annually from entertainment tax on direct-to-home (DTH) services and matches in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the doubling of tax on feature films.

While bringing DTH under the entertainment tax net is likely to yield about Rs.75 crore, IPL may contribute Rs.18 crore to the exchequer, official sources say.

Regarding entertainment tax on films, the government recently modified the previous regime’s policy of giving exemption from the levy for any film with a Tamil title. The concession will be available only to films free from violence and obscenity, according to the present regime’s formulation. The removal of the blanket exemption for films with Tamil titles may yield up to Rs.60 crore, officials say.

The Film and Television Producers Guild of South India has said that the hike in entertainment tax on cinematography films on theatrical exhibition has come as a rude shock to the Tamil film industry.
