CBFC New Rules: UA Films Will Be Further Divided In Different Age Categories For Children

There are some rules and regulations regarding films, under which they are released on the big screen. Before any movie is given its theatrical release, it is given a certificate, which tells who can watch that film and who cannot. 

Some changes have now been made in these rules under CBFC, after which films will now be released under the new rules.

According to a report in Hindustan Times, the changes have been made in the first set of rules with the aim of bringing necessary changes in the film certification process. 

Under the Cinematograph (Certification) Rules, 2024, the Central Board of Film Certification has made the entire process online.

Women’s participation has been emphasized in the new rule. Under this change, now one-third of the board members will be women.

Till now films are released under A, UA and U categories. A certificate means films which can be watched only by adults. ‘U’ means those movies which are family friendly and UA certificate means those movies which everyone can watch. But now changes have also been made in the age restriction of UA category.

Films divided by age groups

Films getting UA certificates will also be divided into three categories. The first category will be (UA 7), the second will be (UA 13) and the third will be (UA 16). This means that now films will also be released keeping in mind the children of seven years, 13 years and 16 years.
