No more leak of movies before release, CBFC chief Pehlaj Nihalani has given his stamp and approved the DCP (Digital Cinema Package) format for movie submission to Censor Board. The nod for DCP by CBFC has received full-fledged support from IFTPC (Indian Film & TV Producers Council).

It must be recalled that Sajid Nadiadwala  (President of IFTPC) suggested a DCP format for movie submission. This move was waiting for the Censor Board stamp of approval which got the approval thanks to CBFC Chairman Pehlaj Nihalani's prompt response.

Pehlaj Nihalani has asked to make it mandatory for the producers to submit their films on DCP (Digital Cinema Package) for Censor.

Earlier films were submitted in DVD's hand delivered to the Censor that had chances of the dvd getting tampered. Though the Censor receives the copy and it gets a foolproof seal, the recent incidents of UDTA PUNJAB, GREAT GRAND MASTI etc raised doubts over this procedure that also pointed fingers towards the Censor Board.

The industry is bearing this burnt which is making big dent in the pockets of producers who are left helpless to find their audience watching their film on mobiles and not in theatres.

The cry to bring in quick reform seems to have got an ear and Pehlaj Nihalani's decision is getting cheered from the Producer's council who are finding a hope against the ever-growing menace of Piracy in many ways. Piracy has been an issue of concern for the fraternity and his diligent effort in this regard is much appreciated.

Welcoming the decision Film maker Vijay Galani (member of IFTPC' Governing Council) states, “ Its now mandatory for all producers to submit their film for certification only via DCP. The CBFC Chief will accept no other form of communication. This stance has appreciated by the IFPTC.”.

Filmmaker N R Pachisia (Genral Secretary, Governing committee of the IFTPC) pointed out, “Censor copy leaks have led to a fear of losing money amongst film makers, piracy really kills he adds he welcomes the CBFC move and The CBFC has the necessary digital aid to save guard the film makers rights it just not the producers losing money but also the Central Government losses crores in entertainment tax because of Piracy.”
