It has come to the notice of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) that there have been few instances of filmmakers tampering with the certified contents. This has been viewed very seriously by the CBFC.

Under the provisions of Rule 33 of Cinematograph Certification Rules 1983, Filmmakers must get voluntary alterations duly endorsed on the Certificates from CBFC before their showing to the general public. All the applicants and distributors are therefore advised to take due care in this regard.  Stringent action as per the law, would be taken in case of such violations.

The film fraternity has cooperated well with Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) over the years to get their movies certified for public exhibition in India, by following the due process of law. CBFC has also streamlined the Certification process by making it transparent, responsive and as swift as possible.
