Tamil Nadu slaps entertainment tax on IPL
Zeenews Sports Bureau
Chennai: The Tamil Nadu government on Wednesday passed a bill in the Assembly which necessitates entertainment tax on Indian Premier League (IPL) matches being played in the state.
The bill, which was introduced by Agri Krishnamurthy, was passed in the Assembly through voice vote with immediate effect. According to the bill, IPL cricket will be slapped with 25 per cent on the total sum including the tax amount paid, for getting permission to hold the T20 matches (as part of the IPL) in Chennai.
Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium (Chepauk) is home to IPL team Chennai Super Kings.
Although the new bill will result in the rise in prices of the ticket, it would help generating more revenue for the state.
