Tamil Nadu theatres call off strike after talks with govt, cinema halls to open tomorrow
Theatre owners and distributors in Tamil Nadu on Thursday called off the strike after government formed a committee to sort out the issue of 30 per cent local body tax on movie tickets over and above the Goods and Services Tax (GST). Theatres that have been closed for last four days will be open tomorrow, Abirami Ramanthan, president of the Tamil Nadu Cinema Theatre Owners Federation, said.
"A committee of government and our representatives formed to sort out the issue of tax, so we have decided to call off strike," Ramanthan said.
The issue also echoed in the ongoing Assembly session with opposition parties DMK and Congress raising it.
