Following on the heels of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, the Congress-ruled Rajasthan has declared Deepika Padukone-starrer "Chhapaak" tax-free in the state.

The decision to declare the Meghna Gulzaar direcetd film tax-free in Rajasthan was taken late on Friday night.

On Thursday, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, both ruled by the Congress, had declared "Chhapaak" tax-free even before its release on Friday.

"We are happy to declare 'Chhapaak' a tax-free film. People have welcomed the decision of exempting this film from the tax bracket. The film shall be an eye-opener," Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Saturday.

The film is based on the life of the acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.
