Bollywood movie Uri exempted from Tax in Uttar Pradesh

Gone are the days when union Finance Minister used to decide what would be exempted from Tax and what not. The new norm is Yogi Adityanath 

Last month Yogi had decided that the people of Uttar Pradesh would have to pay Cow cess as the government is taking extra care of cows in the state. And now, Yogi has decided that the Bollywood movie Uri will be exempted from Goods and Services Tax.

According to a report by news agency ANI, Adityanath made the announcement in Prayagraj after holding a cabinet meeting during the Kumbh Mela. 


Talking to the press, Yogi said, “This film will instil a feeling of nationalism in the youth and the citizens of the country.” 

The movie is based upon the surgical strike done on Pakistan by Indian Army across Line of Control in September 2016.

The CM also has announced to build a 600-km long Ganga Expressway, connecting Prayagraj with Western Uttar Pradesh.

“The Ganga Expressway will go through areas including Meerut, Amroha, Bulandshahr, Budaun, Shahjahanpur, Kannauj, Unnao, Raebareli, Pratapgarh and arrive at Prayagraj,” said Yogi Adityanath. 

Along with the Ganga Expressway, yogi said that the cabinet is also working on the plan of completing the Bundelkhand Expressway and the 3.9 km-long Purvanchal Expressway.

The minister claimed that the proposed Expressway will be the world’s longest expressway. The expressway will take up 6,556 hectares of land and will cost Rs 36,000 crore. 

Talking to the press, Yogi said that he and his administration is very thankful of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for cleaning the Ganga under the Swacch Bharat campaign.
