The government mulls corporatisation of three important institutes — the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), the Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute and the Delhi Public Library, according to reports.
Officials in the PMO told The Indian Express that the “corporatisation” of the three listed bodies could translate into them becoming independent companies or a special purpose vehicle (SPV) could possibly be formed shortly to take over their functioning.
