Abstract (in English)

In the field of conservation of cultural property India has very little professional training facilities, which are again limited to the scope of archaeology. Conservation in India is confined only to the archaeological sites and monuments of great national and regional importance, which are protected by archaeological legislation within the jurisdiction of the Departments of Archaeology at the central and state level. Protection by the Archaeological Acts does not extend to the historic centres, monuments of local importance, historical enclaves and many other buildings and sites deserving conservation.
