Justice SV Bhatt of the High Court at Hyderabad on Thursday gave the go-ahead to theatres to hike ticket prices and to collect them forthwith. The judge further directed that they need not obtain prior approval from any licensing authority for doing this.

The judge was dealing with a petition against the inaction of governments of Telangana and AP in framing parameters for fixing the prices of cinema tickets in the twin States. Though the Telangana government had laid down certain norms for fixing the prices category-wise, it was kept in abeyance.

The government failed to inform the court as to why the order was kept in abeyance. The judge further directed that theatres need not maintain any separate account or records to show the difference between old and new revenue.
