Delhi govt to launch New Film Policy

The Delhi government is launching a new film policy, which will give producers subsidies and discounts on hospitality services. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had said that the maximum subsidy amount will be Rs 3 crore.


The subsidies will be based on how much of the city is captured in the film and if the crew is hired from Delhi. The policy also talks about a single window e-clearance for producers, which will be handled by the Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation.


Sisodia had said that an annual international film festival, along the lines of the one held in Goa, will also be introduced alongside the Delhi Film Excellence Awards.


The policy to promote Delhi as a hub for filming and other related activities through a slew of measures, including setting up of Rs 50 crore “Delhi Film Fund” to support producers and hosting an international film festival every year, was approved by the government earlier this year.


While many films are shot in Delhi, the process for clearances is time-consuming and convoluted. The aim is to make this simpler. This also ties in with the government’s employment budget plans. Delhi cannot have any heavy industries by law, and other areas need to be developed to generate employment.
