Why Rajasthan is the most cost effective location for film shooting?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Rajasthan has always been a popular destination for film makers. Many Blockbuster Hits like Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Delhi 6, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, among others have been shot in Rajasthan. The State Government has now made it even easier and cheaper for them to shoot films in Rajasthan. Considering the long standing demands of film producers the Department of Tourism (DOT), Government of Rajasthan has waived off the Application Fee, Processing Charges and Security Deposit for shooting films in Rajasthan.

In this context the DOT, which is the nodal department for film shooting, has amended the existing ‘Rajasthan Film Shooting Regulations, 2012”. As per the amended regulations – “Rajasthan Film Shooting (Amendment) Regulations, 2016” – the film makers have no longer to pay the security deposit of a whopping Rs. 50 lakhs restricted to one week schedule and Rs. 10 lakh per day beyond the one week. Similarly, the processing charges of Rs. 15000 per day for the first week and Rs. 10 thousand per day beyond the first week has also been waived. Under the new regulations the application fee of Rs. 1000 is also not required to be paid.

To ensure speedy disposal of application for film shooting, nodal officers in DOT as well as in all other related Departments will be appointed who will act as a single reference point for compliance of all processes and extending time bound permissions.

The waiver of the security deposit, processing charges and application fee will give a faster boost to film shooting in the State. The Department will endeavour to extend all help in expediting such proposal so that shooting films in Rajasthan can be made an active economic activity in the State.

Eight years ago, Priyanshi had just returned to Jaipur from Mumbai after getting a degree in Economics and was unsure about what to do with her life. “I was quite depressed as I didn’t particularly like the work environment in Jaipur and I couldn’t understand what career path to pursue. I was talking to my then boyfriend (now husband), Shardul and a random conversation about my love for dogs led me to pursue a career in this field. I did two courses with Shirin Merchant, who is a pioneer in the field of canine behavior and training in India and that’s how my journey as a dog trainer and behaviourist began.”
