JD Majethia, Chairman TV &Web said that the vaccines will be given free of cost to all the workers but a nominal fee will be charged to high end professionals and technicians. The cost of first vaccination drive is funded by Motion Picture & TV Producers Welfare Trust, the philanthropic wing of IFTPC.
IFTPC has requested all its Producer member to submit a list of its crew members so that appropriate time slot can be allotted to reduce the rush. The fraternity has wholeheartedly welcomed the humanitarian approach of IFTPC.
