The Indian Federal Government increases incentives to attract International Production. Will reimburse up to 40% of eligible production expenses, up from the 30% level announced when the incentives were announced in Cannes last year.
The International production companies who had permission to shoot in India, since April 1, 2022, will be eligible for this incentive scheme.
Announcing the changes, at the 54th Indian Film Festival, India’s Minister for Information and Broadcasting Anurag Thakur said.
“This paradigm shift in incentivizing film production serves as a testament to India’s commitment and support for artistic expression and reinforces our position as a preferred destination for cinematic endeavors.”
“This step will give further impetus to India’s efforts to attract medium- and big-budget international film projects to the country. The announcement is also part of the efforts to streamline foreign film productions and to ensure ease of doing business in India.”
In the Indian Film Festival, many Bollywood celebs represent their contribution to the cinema, the celebs include Madhuri Dixit, Sunny Deol, Karan Johar, and Shahid Kapoor.
The function also can be recognized because of Shriya Saran, Nushratt Bharucha, Pankaj Tripathi, Shantanu Moitra, Shreya Ghoshal, and Sukhwinder Singh.
