National Mission on Cultural Mapping

The National Mission on Cultural Mapping was launched by the Culture Ministry in 2017 with an outlay of Rs.469 crore. It was to be implemented from 2017-18 to 2019-20. The objective of this mission is to build a comprehensive database of artists, art forms and other resources from organizations under the Culture Ministry.
Since its launch, the mission witnessed little progress. To address this issue, the mission has been transferred to the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA). The IGNCA is currently preparing to conduct trial run in 75 villages in October.
