The report also suggested that this can create 75,000-120,000 jobs over the next five years with their contribution to the nation’s gross domestic product rising by 0.06-0.08% over the same period. The states who have taken lead in AVGC promotion include Karnataka, Telangana, and Maharashtra.

“I am thrilled to start my new journey with Cosmos-Maya. Animation is a sector that poses immense growth potential. Cosmos-Maya has been at the forefront of the industry in India and Asia and I look forward to working closely with the senior leadership team to create a vigorous growth path for the company," Tata said in a statement.
