Levying entertainment tax on IPL matches is under consideration by Maharashtra cabinet, Chief Minister Ashok Chavan said on Friday.

Talking to reporters at the end of the budget session in Mumbai, Chavan said the matter is not closed for the government.

"Right decision will be taken at an appropriate time," he said, adding that he was not under pressure from ally Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on the issue.

"The last match is on Sunday," he said.

To a question on the Comptroller and Auditor General statement that the government could have got a revenue of Rs 4.99 crore had the ticket sale for IPL been taxed in 2008, Chavan said, "government could have got some revenue," he said.
