Cinema Tickets’ Rate Hike Withdrawn
Hyderabad: The Telangana Government has temporarily set aside the hike in rates of cinema tickets in the State.
The Home Ministry had issued orders on June 23, 2017, hiking the prices of cinema tickets. The maximum price of a film ticket was fixed at Rs. 120 for air-conditioned theatres and Rs. 60 for non-AC ones. Following large-scale protests by the general public and film organisations, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao is believed to have intervened into the matter.
The actual quantum of hike is expected to be announced at a later date after a final decision is taken on the issue.
