The launch of Single Window Permissions for Events in India will facilitate bringing more global events to India.

?

Event and Entertainment Management Association (EEMA), a body for the event industry in India successfully conducted a power-packed one-day agenda on 23 March 2022 at the India Pavilion, Dubai Expo. 

The event was conducted under the aegis of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting along with the Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI). 

The event showcased various highlights from the experiential industry, which included the significant launch of the Single Window Clearance process for events. The launch of Single Window Permissions for Events in India will facilitate bringing more global events to India. This process will ease the entire flow of conducting events in the country. 

In various cities, the event community faces several challenges in gathering permissions and licences for events, which in turn becomes a huge area of concern. In order to cut this chase short, EEMA announced this process in accordance with the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting and the Film Felicitation Office (FFO), NFDC. 

Apurva Chandra, Secretary, Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, Ravinder Bhakar, CEO (CBFC) and Managing Director – NFDC along with Roshan Abbas, President EEMA and Siddhartha Chaturvedi, General Secretary, EEMA were present at the event. 

Apurva Chandra, Secretary, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Govt. of India said, “Event management attracts guests from all around the world and it gives a boost to tourism apart from providing employment and various other advantages. But in India, this has somehow remained sort of an unorganized sector and some competent private sector players face a lot of challenges as there is no authorized body under which all events can be organised. We are happy that today we are launching this process with EEMA. We now look forward to working together so that we can ease the compliance models for permissions for organizing events and make India a world-class destination for such opportunities.”

Roshan Abbas, President, EEMA said, “With ‘India is an Event’, we celebrated the Indian Event Fraternity at the India Pavilion, Dubai Expo 2020. EEMA as the apex body successfully managed to make some powerful announcements at the event. To begin with, we announced the process and framework for single-window clearance with the Information & Broadcasting Ministry and the Film Facilitation office at NFDC across six states under the recommendation of Invest India. Secondly, EEMA announced a comprehensive Wedding Council to work on issues faced by the largest chunk of our sector. Not just this, we also launched the EEMAGIC app (eemagic.org) especially curated for wedding planners with a two-way review system.”

Siddhartha Chaturvedi, General Secretary, EEMA said, “This has been a big day for our industry. Our industry has suffered a lot in the last 2 years. This initiation of the process of Single Window Permissions for Events in India will really help this troubled industry to get back on its feet quickly. We have been asking for this ease of doing business for a long time and have been facing issues around it for many decades. As each event is like a complete project, we find these bottlenecks of taking multiple permissions and the complexities involved in it, which is a big area of concern for every event manager. These delays in seeking these permissions hinder our growth and put a stop to our plans. For this new initiative, we are thankful to the Ministry of I&B & NFDC and feel hopeful towards a positive future ahead.”
