Tensions Of Tax Waiver With AP Locations
The benefits for Tollywood were many when the state of Andhra Pradesh was united. Within the united state of AP wherever the shooting was done, some tax waiver facility was there and it helped many filmmakers.
But now, a big question has risen among few film fraternity members. After bifurcation if shooting is happening in Andhra Pradesh, will waiver not be given in Telangana State is the concern. But here is the update on it.
When it comes to respecting and loving our Telugu language, we are way behind the Tamil and kannada people. They give a lot of importance to their language. But in the recent past, the Telangana government has taken few steps in that direction.
Now, there are reports that the Telangana government is contemplating on a scheme for the Tollywood industry which would encourage Telugu Language. Well, they are planning to implement some tax waivers for those movies which come up with authentic Telugu titles.
Already, this is being followed in Kollywood but they have given a twist that the film should also get a clean U certificate.
Filmnagar sources have confirmed that there is nothing to worry about the taxes because currently the status quo continues and wherever you shoot across the two Telugu states, you are still eligible for those tax waivers. That’s a big relief!
