Rajinikanth's side has decide to withdraw its petition to stop Chennai Corporation levying property tax.
The court censured the actor's lawyer Vijayan Subramaniam for filing a petition just 10 days after serving a notice to Corporation, he was asked could he not wait and send them some reminders instead of coming to the court and wasting its time.
The actor's side has served a notice to Corporation citing a rule that if a property was inactive commercially for over a month then a full tax amount cannot be levied on such a property.
Actor and political hopeful Rajinikanth had filed a petition to Chennai Corporation levying a tax of Rs 6.5 lacs on his Raghavendra mandapam with penalty.
Rajinikanth's side has said that owing to the pandemic lockdown no social gathering took place in that mandapam so they shouldn't be held liable for tax and should be relieved from paying it.
The Chennai Corporation on 23rd last month had sent a notice to the actor which was unanswered.
Bench helmed by Anitha Sumanth was to hear the case today.
Rajinikanth is given time till evening to withdraw the petition.
