GST Effect on Duvvada Jagannadham


Duvvada-Jagannadham-GST-EffGST Council imposed 18% tax on Movie Tickets costing Rs 100 or less. Whereas, 28% tax will be levied on Tickets priced above Rs 100. This move would benefit single screens and low-budget films.

Allu Arjun-starrer ‘Duvvada Jagannadham’ is the first biggie to face the impact of GST. Exhibitors are in a dilemma whether to hike ticket prices or not just because charging more than Rs 100 per ticket will attract additional 10% of tax.

Tax on ‘DJ’ Movie Tickets will be as per existing rates for the first 8 Days. For majority of the films, Around 80% of the revenue comes in the first 10 days of its theatrical run.
