On Sunday, Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javadekar revealed new standard operating procedure (SOP) for media production in the country.

The coronavirus pandemic earlier this year shut down all kinds of production as the country and most of the world went under lockdown.

Javadekar on Twitter released guidelines regarding the shooting of movies, TV shows and other media productions. The minister urged producers to not expose higher risk employees (presumably those above the age of 60) to “frontline” work.

Protective face masks, hand sanitisers, thermal screenings, physical distancing are deemed mandatory at the workplaces. Actors in front of the camera are exempt from face-masks. Additionally, only asymptomatic people will be allowed to take part in the productions. Audiences and those not part of the cast and crew will also be barred from the sets.
