Raipur: With a view to boosting Chhattisgarh's image as a cricket destination, the state government has decided to exempt the tickets of two IPL season-6 matches, which will be played here, from entertainment tax.
"The decision to exempt IPL tickets from entertainment tax was taken during a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Raman Singh yesterday evening," a government official said on Wednesday.
"The event would help the state to emerge as an international and national level cricket destination, which would also boost the business-trade and industrial prospects of Chhattisgarh," the official said.
Delhi Daredevils will play two of their matches at the venue, Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Cricket Stadium, situated at Parsada village in Naya Raipur. They will play Pune Warriors on April 28 and Kolkata Knight Riders on May 1.
