A Bengali film that deals with the plight of people post-demonetisation has been referred by the Kolkata regional office of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to the board’s chairman Pahlaj Nihalani for a decision on certification.

The Kolkata office of the censor board in it’s intimation to “Shunyota” (“Emptiness”) makers has cited “differences of opinion among members of the (examining) committee regarding certification” as a reason to refer it to the chairman for the decision on certification.

“The film was scheduled to release on March 31. We were informed yesterday (Tuesday) that committee members couldn’t take a call regarding category of certification. I think it has got to do with the fact that it goes against demonetisation… there cant be any other reason,” director Suvendu Ghosh said.

Ghosh claimed his film was the first on demonetisation. “We urge the chairman to clear the film,” he said.

Earlier, Prime Ministers Narendra Modi announcement the roll back of 500 and 1000 Rs currency note on November 8, 2016, which sparked debates all across India. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) asked banks to allow exchange of old notes up to Rs 4,000, over-the-counter (OTC) withdrawal of up to Rs 10,000 per day, limited ATM transactions to Rs2,000 per day per card, which were raised to Rs4,000 from 19 November.

It was said that, the decision was taken without due preparedness, forcing millions of people to stand in lines across the country.
