Conversion of Heritage Sites into Tourist Spots in Maharashtra
The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) is responsible for protection, conservation and maintenance of monuments/sites in the country which have been declared as of National importance. Besides this, providing basic facilities/amenities (e.g. drinking water, toilet blocks, facilities for physically challenged, pathways, cultural notice boards/signage, vehicle parking, cloak rooms, etc.) to the tourists visiting centrally protected monuments are the regular activities which the Archaeological Survey of India undertakes, as per need and resources. Improvement/upgradation of these public amenities is a continuous process,   however, there is no scheme for it.


The details of 285 monuments/sites declared under Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act, 1958 as of National importance under the jurisdiction of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) in Maharashtra is given below:-

Tilting of Qutub Minar



As per the survey carried out by Survey of India, Dehradun, the mean rate of annual change in tilt is 3.5 seconds per year w.r.t its base centre. To further prevent this negligible tilt, the entire base of Qutub Minar was water tightened to ensure that water does not percolate into the foundation of the monument.

 Some architectural members of Hindu and Jain Temple were found during the course of conservation & scientific clearance. Some of these members are on display in the Qutub Complex and the rest are kept in safe custody within the same complex.

 No excavation has been carried out in Qutub Complex. Only scientific clearance/conservation was carried out as per requirement.

 This information was given by Minister of State for Culture and Tourism (Independent Charge) and Minister of State for Civil Aviation Dr. Mahesh Sharma in a written reply in Rajya Sabha today.

Implementation of High Powered Committee Report on Akademies



Government has already decided to implement most of the acceptable recommendations of High Powered Committee on Akademies and other institutions under Ministry of Culture subject to maintaining the autonomous character of the Akademies and other institutions as per their Memorandum of Association/Deed/ Rules & Regulations etc.

 Necessary orders/instructions have since been issued by the Ministry to Akademies and other institutions to initiate necessary action for implementation of recommendations concerning them after obtaining approval of their Governing Body/Executive Council etc, as the case may be. Some Institutions namely National School of Drama (NSD), Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) & Centre for Cultural Resources & Training (CCRT) have taken approval of their competent authority for implementation of the recommendations accepted by them.
