The Information and Broadcasting Ministry has transferred the mandate of production of documentaries and short films, organization of film festivals and preservation of films to the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC), a Public sector undertaking working under the Ministry. The Ministry said, the bringing of all these activities under a single management will reduce the overlap of various activities and ensure better utilization of public resources.

The mandate of production of feature films is already being carried out by NFDC. It will give a strong impetus to the production of films of all genres including feature films, documentaries, children films and animation films, organizing various domestic festivals and preservation of the filmic content. The ownership of the assets available with these units will remain with the government.
