The project is being developed on the public-private partnership (PPP) model. Bayview Projects LLB emerged as the company offering the highest revenue share to the state government and was thus selected as the developer for the greenfield project. The bid for the project was floated on September 30, 2023, with January 5, 2024, as the deadline. June was the third time that the bid for the development of the Film City has been floated after two previous attempts failed to attract investors. 

Bayview Projects LLP will now sign a concession agreement with Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority in June to take possession of the land. It will have six months from the signing of the agreement to start construction.
