CBFC 68 Days Rule is Relaxed after Padmavati Row. Double Standard?

CBFC returned Padmavati censor application for few reasons. One is definitely the incomplete submission of application form in which makers didn't added the disclaimer. However, another is full certification process takes upto 68 days. CBFC applied this rule on Padmavati so that film can be postponed for obvious reasons and added by outside pressures.

Now when, Padmavati is postponed, CBFC has taken a complete U-Turn. They have stated that they have relaxed the 68 day rule for all new releases whose censor certificate are in process or those who have announced the release date and may get delayed because of implementation of this existing rule.

As per report CBFC have now formed a separate queue for films that have already announced their release date and which would miss that date if they implement the 68-day period as per guidelines. They want to ensure that none of the films up for certification misses its release.

Means, new upcoming releases including Fukrey Returns, Tiger Zinda Hai, Padman, Aiyaary and rest are releasing as scheduled. There will be no issue of 68 days rule from Censor Board on these and other films lined up for release in coming days and months. Is not this a double standard by CBFC office?
