Smt. Chandresh Kumari Katoch, Minister of Culture (Chairperson of the Council of NCF) and Shri Sachin Pilot, Minister of Corporate Affairs and will address the gathering of Corporate Heads on the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for Indian Heritage.

INDIA CSR 300X300India has a deep commitment towards preserving its cultural heritage; it is our culture that gives us our identity and is also a source of income generation and economic growth that promotes tourism and cultural diplomacy. It is our constitutional and sovereign duty as citizens of this country to take part in the nation building process by first preserving and protecting our heritage and composite culture that belongs to all communities, both urban and rural, in every part of the country.

The National Culture Fund was established by the Ministry of Culture in 1996 as a Trust under the Charitable Endowments Act. 1890. NCF`s primary mandate is to establish and nurture Public Private Partnerships (PPP) in the field of heritage. NCF`s role is to catalyze relationships between private, public, government, non-government agencies, private institutions and foundations and mobilize resources for the restoration, conservation, protection and development of India`s rich, natural, tangible and intangible heritage. NCF provides donors with 100% tax benefit under section 80G (2) of the Income Tax Act and acknowledges the generous contributions of the donor.

Presently, NCF already has such partnerships for the conservation of monuments with some Public Sector Undertakings like the NTPC, ONGC, SAIL, IOC, HUDCO, REC etc and also with Private sector companies.
