The programme will last for three years and will be renewed automatically thereafter.
The cultural exchange programme was signed by Ravindra Singh, secretary, ministry of culture, India and Javier Sarabia, ministry of people's power for culture, Venezuela.
"The countries have decided to promote the exchange of bilingual publications (traditional and contemporary stories), encourage participation of Venezuelan and Indian poets and writers in the literature festivals organised by both countries," said an official statement.
There will also be exchanges between theatre groups, film makers and representatives from both countries, among other things.
