Prior to 1.6.15 such activities were included in Negative List. See Section 66 D (j) as it existed prior to 1.6.15 and w.e.f. 1.6.15 these activities were included in Mega Exemption Notification No. 25/12-ST as amended vide Notification no.6/15-ST dated 1.3.15 (Serial No.47). In the scenario explained by you, exemption is available. No ST is applicable for the whole period mentioned. Conditional exemption is available i.e if price of ticket is less than ₹ 500/- per person for admission to the amusement/entertainment park. In your case, entry ticket is ₹ 30/- only. Hence entitled to exemption.

Therefore, no ST is payable by virtue of Negative List and exemption Notification mentioned above.

Entry 47 of 25/2012 does not cover entry to amusement park. And wef 01.06.2015 it is also removed from negative list. Does it mean entry to amusement park is taxable from 01.06.2015? Can we argue that it's state subject under entry 6 2 of state list Pl guide.

I am reproducing entry 47 of 25/2012 for your ready reference.

47. Services by way of right to admission to,-

(i) exhibition of cinematographic film, circus, dance, or theatrical performance including drama or ballet;

(ii) recognised sporting event;

(iii) award function, concert, pageant, musical performance or any sporting event other than a recognised sporting event, where the consideration for admission is not more than ₹ 500 per person.
