HYDERABAD: Thee first elections for the Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce, which was earlier known as the Andhra Pradesh Film Chamber of Commerce, will be held on July 19. With the TRS government indicating that it does not want to disturb the film industry in Hyderabad, the Telugu film industry, dominated by the people from AP , has finally decided to hold elections to its most important trade body.

In fact, elections for the film body have not been held for the last 23 months mainly due to differences over change of its name. The contention of the Telangana State Film Chamber of Commerce was that it should be the film trade body to represent the industry in the Telangana state.

However, in two general body meetings held in the AP Film Chamber of Commerce, it was decided to change the name Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce. This body will represent the industry both with the Telangana and AP governments. Moreover, it was decided that the Telangana State Film Chamber of Commerce can continue its role as it has been engaged so far.

The executive committee of the Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce met on June 29, where the issue of holding issue of holding elections was discussed. It was also decided that the new body will have a two-year term, instead of one-year term as has been the case so far. "This two-year term will facilitate the body to not only take initiatives for the benefit of the film industry but also get enough time to pursue them to achieve what has been planned," K Ashok Kumar, treasurer of the chamber, said.

There are more than 1,500 members in the film chamber.These members belong to four different sectors in the industry - producers, distributors, exhibitors and studio owners. All the members will elect 52 members to the executive committee.
