Finally, all the issues between Tamil film fraternity and the state government have been sorted out amicably. Vishal who addressed the press after the meeting with Cheif Minister announced the new ticket price policy for films in Tamil Nadu.
Multiplex can now charge a minimum of 50 rupees and a maximum rate of 150. Other A/C theatres are allowed a minimum price of 40 rs and a maximum of 100 whereas Non-A/C theatres can charge 30 rs minimum and 80 rs maximum. Vishal has also warned theatres not to cost more than the government suggested prices. These are base prices and GST, and ET would be exclusive of these rates.
So what would be the total price that a consumer will have to pay for a ticket?
Base - Rs 150
+ 28% GST = Rs 42
+8% ET of Rs 150 = Rs 12
Total - Rs 204 (Online ticket charges not included)
Other AC theatres:
Base - Rs 100
+ 18% GST = 18
+ 8% ET of Rs 100 = Rs 8
Total - 126 (Online ticket charges not included)
Base - Rs 80
+ 18% GST = 14.40
+ 8% ET of 80 = 6.40
Total - 100.80 (Online ticket charges not included)
