CHENNAI: A division Bench of Madras High Court stayed the orders of a single judge who held the word ‘Gethu’ was a Tamil word and directed the commercial tax (CT) department to refund the collected entertainment tax (ET) to the production company. The Bench of Justices V Ramasubramanian and N Kirubakaran granted the injunction while passing interim orders on a writ appeal from the department on Thursday. Originally while allowing a writ petition from Red Giant Movies, Justice M Duraiswamy on February 5 last held that the word ‘Gethu’ was a Tamil word, and set aside a State government order refusing ET exemption to the film. The DMK treasurer MK Stalin’s son, Udhayanidhi had played the main role in the movie. The judge had quashed the CT department’s rejection order dated January 14 and directed it to grant tax exemption from the date of the film’s release i.e. from January 14 and to refund the tax so far collected to the petitioner production company. Aggrieved the department preferred the present appeal.
