Biggest festivals in Goa in a Tax Fuss?

Posted at December 24th, 2015 | by Supreet.cheema | in

As the kick off date of two of the biggest dance music festivals in India is approaching, the news of some or the other warning is popping up. A week back Supersonic and Sunbrun Festival Goa were in news for a reported IS threat that raised concerns regarding the security. And now, pours in another news around the tax fuss wherein the opposition parties are demanding the cancellation of these two major events on the basis that two of the event organizers have not payed their tax dues in two years.

The EDM festivals should not be allowed to take place this year by the state government as organisers of both the festival are yet to pay the tax money for last two events. How can the government allow the organisers to stay without paying taxes for last two events? This is money of tax payers. The government should have recovered the money because we are a cash-starved state.” NCP Goa spokesperson Trojano D’Mello said regarding the situation at hand.

D’Mello further claimed that both the event organisers together owe Rs 3 crore to the government.

Goa Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar also commented on the issue and said that the State Government is determined to recover tax money from EDM organisers.

The tax would be assessed by authorities and it would be collected. We are not lacking at any recovery. We are following proper procedure. ” Parulekar

Lets see what comes out of this political fuss created around these big festivals. Follow us for more updates here.
