For Modi-led Govt, the focus is on 'delay out, decision in'

The Narendra Modi-led Government is losing no time in resolving the various issues faced by different sectors of the economy. Turning its attention to the media and entertainment industry, the Government has initiated dialogue with all sections and stakeholders to exploit the real potential of the industry.

This is being done with the aim of resolving various issues pertaining to distribution, taxes and others in the Indian media and entertainment industry.

While speaking at the inauguration of ‘Screens-2014: 8th Annual Summit on Media & Entertainment,’ organised by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM), Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javadekar said, “The mantra for the Narendra Modi-led Government is ‘Delay is out and Decision is in,’ as we have been asked to delete the word delay so that we can go ahead together with the industry in a fruitful partnership to develop India’s economy and reach optimum heights to exploit the industry’s real potential.”

“As a Government, we are here to facilitate the industry and not to create roadblocks for them,” Javadekar said, adding, “Our job is to give impetus to entrepreneurship as I believe in young talent and creativity and India’s ability to create its own niche in the global market.”

Talking about the growing aspirations of the people in India, the Union I&B Minister said that entertainment comes next only to primary needs of food, clothing and shelter. “There is a need for both the Government and the industry to think about the final consumer and welfare of the common citizens and to that end we are the partners and facilitators.”

“We welcome all suggestions from the industry and we will continue to hold dialogue and march ahead together to seek justice for the common man,” he stressed.

There is tremendous potential for Indian radio and television to have co-operation from world over and we at the same time can provide significant amount of good content to the global television and radio industry, said the Minister.

Javadekar further said that there is a whole lot of growth opportunities present in the Indian M&E industry. “Our culture and civilization is so great that entire world is fascinated about it, so our cinema is becoming more popular and we have scope to make it further more popular,” he added.
