Now, the filming of the precincts for the International film has gone to Nrs. 55,000 from Nrs. 50,000 per day. Likewise, SAARC countries and the Nepali ones now will have to pay Nrs. 35,000 per day, Nrs. 15,000 increments in comparison to the previous Nrs. 20,000. The Nepali music video or the concerned producer will require paying Nrs. 5,000 a day.

“In case of any movie — international, SAARC and Nepali — to be made in mother tongue will be charged only 10 per cent of the payable tax,” it said.
