Mauritius, known for its scenic beauty and exotic locales, has launched a rebate scheme to attract film makers, especially from Bollywood, to shoot in the picturesque island nation.
The Film Rebate Scheme allows for a 30 per cent refund on all the Qualifying Production Expenditures (QPPE) incurred by all film producers in respect of their projects in Mauritius.

The scheme was launched earlier this week by the country’s Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Finance & Economic Development Xavier—Luc Duval and Minister of Arts and Culture Mookhesswur Choonee, in the presence of Bollywood Actor Jackie Shroff.
