The Union Government on 18 January 2016 decided to institute a new award category under the National Film Awards titled The Most Film Friendly State/UT.

The new award will be conferred for the first time at the 63rd National Film Awards to be held on 3 May 2016.  

The decision to create a new category of award was taken as part of the government’s effort to promote the Indian film industry and India’s Soft Power.

Besides, in a bid to promote India as a filming destination and facilitate filmmaking, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry (I&B) also decided to set up a film facilitation office at the NFDC premises under the supervision of the Ministry.

The decision was taken after the ministry's meeting with filmmakers, including national award-winner Shyam Benegal.
