Media wants be made tax free

Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Bhootnath Returns, a movie that emphasises the importance of voting, should be made tax free so that its message reaches a wider audience, the Election Commission has been urged. 

In a petition to the commission, a media organisation here said that tax free status for the film, which is doing well at the box office, would only be appropriate as the country is in the middle of a general election. 

‘The state governments should support the strong social message that emanates from the film. Granting tax-free status to this film would make people aware about their rights as voters like making voter ID cards or not treating polling day as holiday,’ the petition by U4U Voice said.
