Film Federation of India calls off strike

By NewsDesk • Published on February 22, 2012

The strike that the Film Federation of India had proposed for February 23 has been called off.

The move came after a meeting with Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee who asked the Federation to be patient till the budget.

The FFI had called for strike in protest of imposition of a service tax on the film industry. Reportedly, producers, exhibitors, multiplexes and single screens didn’t want to be a part of the strike which would have required them to shut shop on February 23.
