Movie and TV watching to get dearer in Delhi as AAP hikes ent tax
MUMBAI: The Aam Aadmi Party government of Delhi has issued a notification of an increase in entertainment tax, making movie and TV watching costlier in the national capital from 20 July.
The proposal to increase entertainment tax from 20 to 40 per cent was tabled by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia in Assembly last month and the government has now notified its decision.
Watching movies in cinema halls in Delhi will be costlier from 20 July and so will watching television through cable and DTH services as the AAP government has also increased entertainment tax on these services from Rs 20 to Rs 40.
It is also learnt that the government may notify its decision to increase luxury tax from 10 to 15 per cent next week.
Criticising the government’s move, opposition parties BJP and Congress have accused the AAP government of ‘cheating’ people.
