Film City in Chandigarh
Chandigarh January 21:-Chandigarh Administration has prepared a prospective plan for the Union Territory of Chandigarh keeping in view the requirements, needs and aspirations of the people and the areas around Chandigarh in light of opportunities being thrown up by increased economicupsurge and technological developments happening in the country. Such activities are planned in the available limited land in the UnionTerritory in such a way that create large employment opportunities for the skilled and unskilled employable youths and also add value to the economyof the Union Territory. Keeping above in mind, the Chandigarh Administration has thought of setting up a Film City in the UT. An area measuring 30 acres has been earmarked for this purpose which may increaseor decrease depending upon the final scope of the project. A spokespersonof the Administration informed that the Administration has been involved in discussion with many companies/persons who have shown keen interest in undertaking this project. Going by the huge interest displayed by some ofthe entertainment companies it seems the project was long over due. Inaddition to traditional facilities required for film production, the citywould have facilities for processes like animation and digitization of films. Once the outlines and contents of the project become crystallized,an Expression of Interest from prospective developers would be invited bythe Chandigarh Administration for this project.
