Cabinet clears Gandhi Heritage Sites Mission

New Delhi, May 17 : The Union Cabinet has approved the establishment of the Gandhi Heritage Sites Mission with the objective of conserving and restoring the heritage sites associated with 'Father of the Nation'.

The mission would be entrusted with the identification, collation and assessment of information on 'Gandhi Heritage' material for its management and deployment.

Its task would also include the determination of conservation methodology and priorities for documents and objects, particularly from the point of view of archival storage and museology and for physical structures and sites, as also guidelines for their subsequent maintenance.

The dissemination of information based on relevant material for identification, collation and assessment and conservation would be through a web based portal, publications, audio/visual (CDs, digital prints, etc.) and communication through core sites while specifying - where necessary - function and use and the significance of the site.

The mission will aim at preserving for posterity 39 core sites as well as other 2,000 important sites earlier identified by the panel under the chairmanship of Gopalkrishna Gandhi, ex-Governor of West Bengal.
