Interacting with the media today, Tamil Nadu Minister of Information and Publicity Kadambur Raju has announced that online ticket booking websites should only charge the booking fee for one ticket in case of customers who book multiple tickets using their platform.

Earlier if a customer book multiple tickets, he/she should pay an additional booking fee(minimum Rs 30) for each ticket. TN Government is working on a full swing to computerize all the theaters in the state and they are planning to closely monitor the tickets sold to make sure that there is no tax evasion in the film industry.

Representatives of film bodies have also requested a few issues like regulating exorbitant rates of food and beverages sold in theaters, increase the maximum number of shows allowed and they also met Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to regulate the GST on movie tickets.
