Mission / Vision

The Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) was set up in 1984 and, as the name suggests, is India’s National Trust for the conservation of India’s unprotected heritage. The vision of its founding members was to create a membership organization to stimulate and spearhead heritage awareness and conservation in India in the image of much older National Trusts of other nations. INTACH has pioneered the protection of India’s natural and cultural heritage and is today the largest membership organization in the country dedicated to conservation. With its headquarters in New Delhi, it has more than 140 chapters all over the country.
