MUMBAI: Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association (IMPPA) has requested its members to pay the dues to their employees, workers, artists and technicians as soon as possible to enable them to survive in these difficult times. 

The association reminded all its members of the situation of the workers, technicians and artists who have not yet been paid the dues. Their condition has become very serious due to further extension of the lockdown by the government, said an IMPPA statement.

“We are aware that our members are also having liquidity crunch and are facing difficulties, but on humanitarian ground we request all our members who have taken work from any of their employees, workers, artists and technicians for any of their productions to clear their dues,” said the statement.

The association said that the unpaid workers are more vulnerable in these trying times and that paying the dues will ensure that they get enough money to fulfill their daily needs.
