Rajinikanth moves Madras HC against property tax demand for marriage hall

Rajinikanth, in his petition, had submitted that he has not let out the marriage hall to anyone from March 24 due to the lockdown and therefore no revenue has been generated by the hall since. Rajinikanth’s property, Raghavendra marriage hall, which is located at Kodambakkam in Chennai, is one of the popular ones in the city. The GCC has drafted the property tax for the last six months.

Rajinikanth filed the petition through his counsel Vijayan Subrahmanyan. In his petition, the Darbar actor stated that the marriage hall was vacant since March 24, 2020, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. He further added that no revenue was generated during the period.

According to the plea, the actor had on September 10 received a property tax invoice from the Greater Chennai Corporation for the payment of Rs 6.50 lakhs as property tax for the months April through September towards the marriage hall.
