PVR cinepolis profiteering big time

Everyone should report profiteering by multiplexes if observed. Find an old ticket of 2018 and one of 2019

PVR Cinemas and Cinepolis theatres are under the scanner of the anti-profiteering authorities for not reducing the price of movie tickets in line with the rate cut announced by the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council earlier.
A preliminary probe has been initiated by the state-level anti-profiteering committee against the two multiplex players in the national capital region, after some consumers complained to the committee that the two chains hadn't passed on the relief to moviegoers.
A complainant alleged the ticket price of Simbaa was not slashed at PVR theatres. A similar plaint was made against Cinepolis at Saket. more

Movie tickets and eating there both are costly affair.Who is making money?Owners or the corrupt Govt official or Govt itself. more  
What is the need for every cine goers to report to the authority. Since it is already brought to their notice, is it not their duty to find out the truth by collecting information regarding the previous and present prices of tickets? from the multiplexes itself? more  
Initial probe means formation of committees means long, long, long wait for redressal.....
Sad, but true...... more  
movies watching has become out of reach since long now plus then jumle ke sarkar ? more  
Garima, keep it up. Such reporting by the general public is going to affect the attitude of the manufacturer/service provider /traders etc. Swift action/disposal of case by anti profiteering agency or for that matter any other concerned government department will act as deterrent for the manufacturer/service provider /traders etc. and we request government to dispose off all cases of profiteering within 3 months of reporting. It will act as a revenue source for a while to help development activities. It may even be outsourced with clear guidelines and instructions on a revenue sharing basis. more
