New notice from CBFC regarding the usage of subtitles

Here is a new notice from CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) regarding the usage of subtitles in films.

"It has been recently observed that a number of films are screened before CBFC and subsequently certified without any sub-titles. However, after certification, some of the films are found to be exhibited with sub-titles without even seeking the endorsement of CBFC under Rule 33. As per Rule 22(3) of the Cinematograph (Certification) Rules, 1983, only the final version of the film is to be shown to the Examining committee for certification purposes.

It is therefore directed that all the applicants must submit an undertaking along with the application clearly stating either that — a) Subtitles are included, or b) Subsequently no subtitles will be added once the film is certified by CBFC."
