Rajinikanth moves Madras HC against Chennai Corporation’s tax demand for marriage hall

Rajinikanth has filed a petition with Madras High Court against Greater Chennai Corporation for demanding a property tax of Rs 6.50 lakh for his Raghavendra marriage hall.

Superstar Rajinikanth has moved the Madras High Court against Greater Chennai Corporation’s (GCC) demand of property tax of Rs 6.50 lakh for his marriage hall in Chennai. Rajinikanth’s property, Raghavendra marriage hall, which is located at Kodambakkam in Chennai, is one of the popular ones in the city. The GCC has drafted the property tax for the last six months.

Rajinikanth filed the petition through his counsel Vijayan Subrahmanyan. In his petition, the Darbar actor stated that the marriage hall was vacant since March 24, 2020, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. He further added that no revenue was generated during the period.

Recently, Greater Chennai Corporation sent a tax notice to Rajinikanth for the half-yearly period i.e from April to September.

Rajinikanth, in his petition, wrote that followed government rules that he followed during the lockdown. Stating that he has been paying property tax for Raghavendra marriage hall regularly, Rajinikanth also added that he had returned the advance amount to people who had booked the hall before the lockdown was announced. Reportedly, Rajinikanth paid tax on February 14 this year.

His petition also states that he is eligible for remission of tax because Raghavendra marriage hall remained vacant since March 24.

On the work front, Rajinikanth is waiting to resume the shooting of his upcoming film, Annaatthe. Earlier, it was reported that the shooting was supposed to commence in October, but it has now been postponed to November due to rising Covid-19 cases.
