Raipur: To create an investment climate for the film industry in Chhattisgarh, the state government has decided to formulate film policy-2021 and promote film shooting in the state by giving them subsidies and attractive incentives. The state cabinet, chaired by chief minister Bhupesh Baghel, gave the nod for framing the film policy that aims to attract Bollywood and OTT platforms to the state so that the state’s natural beauty and places of historic and cultural importance could get high visibility at the national and international level.
Gaurav Dwivedi, advisor to the Chhattisgarh government said the new policy would help create job opportunities for the youth in various fields related to film production within the state. He said the policy, being formulated at the initiative of chief minister Bhupesh Baghel would mutually benefit the film industry as well as the state.
