Police License
              Most states require that an entertainment center should possess a police license for the premises. If tickets are sold at the premises a separate license from the police is required.

              The process for granting a police license varies from place to place for eg. In Thane (Mumbai) Collector sends police department the license application. Police checks the premises and facilities like parking etc then gives an NOC to Collector.

Entertainment Tax
              Entertainment tax is a thorny issue for Family Recreation centers in many states of India. Ten-pin Bowling is a sport. Frequent change in the tax laws and hikes in entertainment tax have caused many centers to close down.

              Problems are compounded by the fact that every state has got its own set of laws and tariffs. During committee meetings of the various associations, entertainment tax discussions occupy a major portion of the time available leaving very less time to discuss improvement of the industry.

              It is important to understand the mechanism by which entertainment tax is levied. There are many factors to take care of . For example: In some cities if you have a dance floor then regardless of if you are using it or not, you have to pay a certain amount every month.

               Entertainment tax decisions are taken by the cabinet not by any single official. Usually Revenue Minister and Chief Minister are involved through the cabinet.
