For several years Swiss Alps and beaches in Mauritius have lured Indian cinema makers. The locales have also become popular destinations for Indian holiday makers.
Now to boost domestic tourism, the Indian government will encourage cinema makers to film in India. The government will frame a model film facilitation policy and also encourage states to set up film promotion offices to facilitate timely permissions for shoots. This is a part of a joint initiative by Information & Broadcasting and Tourism ministries.
While the cost of shooting a film is lower in India than overseas, producers opt for foreign locales because of friendly policies and easier permissions.
Fourteen states have their own film facilitation policy while 18 states give incentives to film makers. Indian government is planning to come out with a draft model film policy based on some of the state policies. The draft model policy will be circulated with other states so that they too can adopt it. While incentives are important, ease of shooting and ease of clearances are more essential.
