Why there is a Difference in official Collections by producers and Actual Collections??

Difference in official Collections by producers and Actual Collections

for example According to Producers Tuesday collections for

SOS-Tuesday – 10.72 crore
and
JTHJ-Tuesday – 15.23 crore

while the actual collections for both were-

SOS-Tuesday – 8.5 crore
and
JTHJ-Tuesday – 12.50 crore
 
Now the answer is here—
Producers always give high figures for Mumbai circuit  as all other circuits have accurate techniques to calculate Collections and being in mumbai they can easily   Report high collections.
For fact see this–

Mumbai(Excluding Gujarat) was band on Saturday 6 pm onwards till whole of Sunday
so producers collections are coinciding with Actual collections—-

According to producers-

SOS–Saturday–8.5 crore
SOS—Sunday–8.25 crore
JTHJ–Saturday–10.38 crore
JTHJ–Sunday–9.96 crore

while Actual collections–

SOS–Saturday–8.25 crore
SOS—Sunday–8.25 crore
JTHJ–Saturday–10.25 cr
JTHJ–Sunday–9.50 crore
while the difference(Higher by producers) in Tuesday and wednesday collections were in tune of 3-4 crores.
saturday and sunday collections were just Differ from 0.25-0.50 lakhs

      But why Taran and Komal quote same figure as produces say?
      1. It keeps producers and distributors happy
      2. It keeps fans happy
      3. They don’t need to do the hard work

      Don’t they analyze this difference?
      No.

      And what is source of boxofficeindia.com and how they get actual figures??
      Exhibitors and Sub Distributors

    Things are not that much simple. Have a look at following URLs

    And watch out for oso opening week figures.

    In 2007 they said it opening week is 41crore but now it is 36 crore.

    Is that a BOI article? if so provide the link.

    It is also biased and wrong. BOI estimates figures and they change their estimates later so they are no way accurate.

    Producers have actual figures but they may report higher income in certain cases.

    The reason given about Mumbai is just ridiculous. Mumbai is also the hardest to fake nos because every trade analyst is based in Mumbai and they can detect wrong figures easily, not so for other states.
