Abstract (in English)

In the 1980 there is a growing concern about conserving India's built heritage, just as in the 1950s there were a movement to revive handicrafts and in the 1960s for the conservation of the natural environment. The formation of pressure-groups at the local and national level testifies to this. The conservation movement in India can learn much from the West, but there are many problems and prospects which are specific to India.
