It is learned that the Madras High Court is serious against superstar Rajinikanth over the property tax dispute related to the Raghavendra Kalyana mandapa in Chennai. He responded via Twitter on Thursday.
He added that he had made a mistake and that he should have approached the Chennai Corporation without resorting to the Madras High Court on the property tax issue, adding the Tamil hashtag ‘Anubhavame Patham’.
Chennai Corporation has issued notices to Rajinikanth’s Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam to pay a property tax of Rs 6.50 lakh for six months. He filed a petition in the Madras High Court challenging this.
‘I paid property tax on February 14 this year. In this context, the Chennai Corporation issued a notice on September 10 to assess the property tax for the welfare mandapa and pay Rs 6.50 lakh for the April-September period.
Failure to pay on time will result in a 2 percent fine, the notice said. The welfare mandapam has been closed since March as per the directions of the central and state governments.
It is not fair to ask to pay property tax on a wedding mandapa that has no income. The corporation has been contacted but no reply has been received, the petition said.
ராகவேந்திரா மண்டப சொத்து வரி…
நாம் மாநகராட்சியில் மேல்முறையீடு செய்திருக்க வேண்டும்.

The court hearing the petition asked, ‘Do you even give the authorities time to think about your letter? Will you file a petition in the court in the meantime?
You will be fined for wasting court time and the petition will have to be dismissed, ”the Madras High Court said. In this context, Rajinikanth tweeted.
