The Punjab government is planning to charge Rs 50 as entertainment tax per television for cable TV and direct-to-home (DTH) connections.

The state government’s local bodies department, headed by cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sindhu, has decided to impose Rs 50 as entertainment tax per TV for cable and DTH connection, Hindustan Times has reported. This will help the department mop up a revenue of Rs 400 crore annually, which will help fill the empty coffers of urban local bodies (ULBs) and panchyats.

The move will impact the cable TV networks operating in the state of Punjab, including the dominant multi-system operator (MSO) Fastway Transmission and the direct-to-home (DTH) service providers .

As of now, cable operators are paying a fee of only Rs 15,000 per year to local bodies. This is irrespective of the number of connections they are having. “We will pass the entertainment tax to customers,” HT quoted a cable operator as saying.

While DTH has nearly 16 lakh connections, Fastway claims to have 22 lakh cable connections in Punjab, Chandra told HT. “The actual figure is much bigger; thus, we have started the process to collect data from every home to calculate the real number. We are expecting the actual number of TVs having cable/DTH service to be above 60 lakh,” Chandra further stated.
