20 October 2017 Current Affairs: Assam State Government rolled out ‘Tourism Policy of Assam 2017’ with an aim to increase tourist inflow in the state by at least two to three times within next five years.
In the policy, special emphasis has been laid on making the state a preferred destination of filmmaking by offering a range of incentives to movie producers.
This benefit will be offered only to those films in which 25 percent shooting is done in Assam and 25 percent of cast and crew should be from the state. Besides, 10 percent rebate will be offered if more than 50 percent of the entire shooting is done in Assam.
For constructing tourism units such as tourist lodges, hotels, resorts, houseboats and floating restaurants in Assam, a capital investment subsidy at the rate of 30 percent of the capital investment, subject to a ceiling of Rs 1 crore will be provided to the investor by the State Government.
