IT dept plea: SC issues notice to Big B

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, May 4: Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan was issued a notice by the Supreme Court of India over his security expense claim amounting to 30 pc of around 6.90 crore, the amount Big B received for the popular TV game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati.'

Reports suggest that the Apex court has asked Big B to explain in detail on how he spent the 30 pc of his income from the show on his security. Earlier Bombay High Court had allowed IT exemption on 30 percent of Bachchan's total income of Rs 50.92 crore from the show.

However the IT department in its appeal challenged the order on the grounds that the relief is for those artistes who either earn by performing outside the country or receive payment from foreign agencies. The department also said that Big B was acting as an anchor in the TV programme for Star India Ltd and cannot be termed artiste for his role in the show. Final hearing of the case is on Oct 28.
