National Mission for Manuscripts

The National Mission for Manuscripts (NMM) is the first consolidated national effort for reclaiming India’s inheritance of knowledge contained in the vast treasure of manuscripts.  Manuscripts, which contain centuries of accrued knowledge in such areas as philosophy, sciences, literature, arts and the pluralistic faith systems of India are more than just historical records.  They represent the collective wisdom and experience of generations of thinkers.  The Mission was established in 2003 with the objective of creating a national resource base for manuscripts, scattered across the country.  The Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts is the nodal Agency for its implementation.

            With a view to restore Indian manuscripts, in terms of both physical conservation and digitization, as well as to promote access through research and publication, the Mission operates through a national network of institutions and manuscript repositories.  The number of centers (category-wise) are as follows:
