New Delhi: Government may introduce a Billin Parliament to “drastically prune” the number of permissions required to be obtained for shooting films.
Union Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs and Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said the Bill “could be brought about either in the forthcoming winter session or else latest by the Budget session of the Parliament”, a release issued by PHD Chamber of Commerce said.
Naqvi said the Government was conscious of the fact that producers and film makers are subjected to obtaining host of clearances from the Centre as well as states before being getting the permission to shoot at a particular location in the country.
“This delays their schedule of timely deliveries of their production as well subjects them to lots of inconveniences.
Therefore, the government is going to take corrective measures to sort out this problem through a proper legislation,” Naqvi said.
The remarks of the Minister came after filmmakers Prakash Jha and Madhur Bhandarkar requested the Government to drastically reduce the list of permissions for film shootings, currently numbering close to 35 from various agencies. PTI
