Looking at this asset which we have in Gujarat. We want to lever in the cinematic tourism policy A very very I I will take this opportunity to present ah some features of this policy in four or five slides at the maximum. So, as we know any policy, the major objective for us for the tourism department is that Gujarat should be a leader in tourism and using cinematic tourism. We want to become one of the leaders in tourism, in India. And to promote and develop ecosystem for film production is our vision. To
fulfill this vision, we will be working on a five prong objectives. This policy aims to promote various destinations, showcase, culture and heritage of Gujarat. Encourage private participation in film infrastructure in Gujarat. Motivate technical innovations in Gujarat and produce entrepreneurial opportunity and employability in Gujarat. For
doing that we have a three pronged strategy which is development of a film infrastructure. A subsidy structure which gives financial assistance and above all simplified procedures to make all this possible in Gujarat. Basically this policy promises to incentivise 4 sectors. One is film infrastructure. So any kind of project coming to Gujarat in like film city, television studio, training studio, post production studio, film processing labs. They will all be eligible for incentives under this policy. Then the
second major part is film making in Gujarat will also be incentivise. So for shooting of films, TV series, web documentaries, OTT platform, everything has been covered in this portion. The part which will be shot in Gujarat will be eligible for subsidies in Gujarat policy. Then we also have made special provisions from for brand affiliations. There are many projects which may not be shot in Gujarat. But they cover the story of Gujarat, the culture of Gujarat. And such promoting
destinations or tourist facility that is the aim of those ah projects. Then those films web series, TV series, documentaries will also be eligible for incentives under this policy. Then we have also made provision for mega film events. And price ah award functions at national international level and to achieve this we will try to create a single, real single window system which will be completely online process driven, process of applications will also be done online and will also are working simultaneously on creating a database of the locations, skilled manpower, production resources, important contacts which will also be available for the industry to use. Will
also be creating a system for constant feedback and will be open to improve our policy. There are three simple steps to avail the benefits under this policy, online submission of applications which will be scrutinized by our expenditure, the document, the committee and the incentives will be approved. We have kept it very very simple and I want to assure you that I believe that the real test of any policy is in the way it is implemented. We are truly committed to implement this policy in a very efficient and fast manner and will be looking for your feedbacks to further improve this policy. Just to highlight
for few things, you really when a policy is announced it takes time to get implemented. But along this with policy, today we are also announcing the operational GR of this policy.
