Abstract (in English)

The Indian cultural heritage is on the threshold of many risks, threats and perils that the cultural annals of the country and mankind ever seen. The protection, preservation and promotion of it has become one of the regular topics of the discussion among the academicians, art connoisseurs and the people alike. The Government and its agencies are assiduously endeavouring to conserve the heritage of the country and are enacting the antiquarian legislations as and when the need arises to ensure its safety and security. Even, the international communities like UNESCO, ICOM and ICOMOS are evincing deep concern to protect the monuments and natural sites of universal and exceptional value and are bringing out the documents of Conventions and Recommendations containing useful guidelines for preservation of them from time to time.
