MUMBAI: Filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker has said the "single window scheme" to get permissions for shooting in Maharashtra will help the film industry immensely.

Tourism Minister Jayakumar Rawal today handed over to Gowariker a copy of the government resolution regarding the single window scheme, which makes it easier to get all required permissions for shooting for cinema, TV serials and advertisement.

The "Jodha Akbar" director met Rawal and discussed how can Bollywood help improve tourism and promote the state.

Gowariker said the decision to have a single window for all necessary permissions is great.

"Maharashtra has a lot of potential and has been drawing filmmakers to shoot here. But often, due to lack of getting permission they have to change locations. "Bollywood will benefit greatly from this single window scheme," the director said.
