To help the pandemic-hit Kannada film industry, the state government has proposed to reimburse its share of GST on movie tickets that were sold during the Unlock period last year. But there is a lack of consensus over who should get this benefit, and this is delaying the scheme’s implementation.A large section of the film industry wants the reimbursement to be given to producers, but officials and domain experts say that it should go to viewers, who pay the tax. “The implementation of the GST reimbursement is delayed because of the stalemate over identifying beneficiaries. We want representatives to discuss among themselves and come up with workable suggestions. The scheme will be rolled out once there is clarity on it,” said minister for information and public relations CC Patil, adding that he would call a meeting with stakeholders soon.
