The amnesty was controversial during the coalition government.
Mumbai, January 6: The decision to waive the fee for Wizcraft, a company that hosts pop singer Michael Jackson, was taken at a meeting of the Thackeray government today. On November 1, 1996, there was a Shiv Sena-BJP coalition government. To raise funds for Shiv Udyog Sena, Shiv Sena organized a program of pop singer Michael Jackson in Mumbai. The show has seemed a bit unfocused in recent episodes. Wizcraft was the company that hosted Jackson’s event.
This entertainment tax was waived for ‘bit music’. But the decision to waive the entertainment tax for pop music was taken during the then coalition government. At that time, Adv Shirish Deshpande had filed a PIL in the High Court on behalf of the Consumer Panchayat. At that time, Rs 3 crore 33 lakh was kept in the bank. (Entertainment fee waiver for pop singer Michael Jacksons) Now after 24 years of hearing, a proposal was tabled in the state cabinet meeting under the Shiv Sena-led government to refund the amount of entertainment fee to the organizing company. It was approved unanimously. The state’s financial situation is dire against the backdrop of a consumer panchayat coronation this morning. Therefore, a letter was written to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray asking him to waive the fee.
