Digital movie codes are used in many forms in India.
Most of these codes are printed on paper and have to be entered in a computer terminal to play.
But the government has now decided to scrap digital movie coding altogether.
It will not replace the old codes or use new ones.
Instead, it will cut the digital codes used for digital movies from 15 to 5 digit codes.
In addition, it wants to cut the number of digital font codes, or fonts, from 20 to 5.
India is the world’s fourth largest film market, after China, Russia and the US.
It is also the country where most people will buy digital movies.
The government is now asking the film industry to cut its digital movie cost by 50 per cent from 1,000 rupees ($2.10) to around 5,000 to account for the change.
