As per the new rule, the government will provide up to Rs 25 lakh to a full-length movie or a child movie. Depending on the length and other aspects, an animation movie can also receive a maximum subsidy of Rs 25 lakh from the government. If a movie gets national prize then they get all the money return and if it goes to Oscar then they get Rs. 2 crores. Most important is every artist gets the provident fund.
