The office  of the Central Board Of Film Certification(CBFC) in Mumbai would no longer be located  in​ Walkeshwar . After 57 years ,the offices of  the censor board have now moved to the other end  of town to Peddar Road in SouthMumbai.

This re-location on the other end of the hub of the film Industry in theAndheri is deliberate.Says the CBFC​ chairerson Pahlaj Nihlani​, “The office is being shifted this month from ​Walkeshwar​

to Peddar Road in the same compound as the Films Division  office. This is  in pursuance  of  the endeavour to delink the Mumbai film industry from the workings of the CBFC as far as possible. Producers should not be at  liberty to drop in at the CBFCoffice to meet the chairperson at the drop of a hat. In fact, now  when the CBFC moves to a  new office no producer or any member  of the film industry would be  entertained without a prior appointment.”
