Members of the Cine & TV Artistes Association (CINTAA) recently met with Additional Commissioner of Labour Shirin S Lokhande and Secretary Vinita Ved Singhal in Mumbai. 

The representatives discussed concerns regarding changes to shooting regulations in the wake of the third wave of COVID-19 in India. CINTAA dignitaries including Joint Secretary Sanjay Bhatia, CEO Satish Vasan and Executive Committee Member Hetal Parmar raised issues like the enforcement of actor rights and other concerns. 

The major concerns the Honourable Labour Commissioner took note of were - 

  • Actors working for less than seven days a month shall be brought under contract and to be paid within 30 days
  • Children should not work for more than 8 hours a day and there should be appropriate guidelines.
  • Contract copies of the actors shall be given to the actors at the earliest.
  • Women and Child actors shall be provided pickup and drop from their homes in case of odd hours of shooting shifts like very early call time and late-night pack up.
  • Request for a uniform contract and include the broadcasters as a party to the contract.
  • Attention of the Additional Commissioner being drawn to the payment delays/defaults by producers.
  • Reluctance by producers to hand over copy of the talent agreement to the artiste was put forth and she categorically emphasized that both parties to the agreement should have a copy of the same.

A written representation was also submitted to the commissioner.
