New Delhi, 09 July: After opening of historical monuments from July 6, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism will now resume shooting of films in historical monuments. Permission will be given within 15 days, simplifying the necessary paperwork procedure in this regard.

Culture and Tourism Minister Prahlada Singh Patel said at a FICCI event held on Thursday that it takes a lot of time for producers to get permission to shoot films in monuments protected by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). Therefore, this problem will be resolved soon by meeting with all the stakeholders.

He said that such an arrangement will be made in this regard that the filmmakers get permission to shoot in monuments within 15 days. Currently ASI has 3691 historical monuments.

On the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the tourism sector, he said that the pandemic has also brought an opportunity which will increase the possibilities in the area of โ€‹โ€‹wellness centre in the country. People should see it as an opportunity and work towards turning it into an opportunity.
