Film institute students caused loss of 12 crore

A report about students of the Film and Television Institute of India, FTII has revealed huge losses of government money.

The FTII is among India's top film institutes, and the audit shows that many students did not finish their courses on time and overstayed, leading to a loss of Rs 12 crore.

The losses were because 212 students continued to stay in the hostels without paying the hostel fees after they failed to complete their courses.

The FTII is based in Pune and is under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. The Institute offers courses in film direction, editing, acting and more.
