The National Culture Fund (NCF) was established by the Ministry of Culture in 1996 and is a Trust under the Charitable Endowments Act of 1890. It is governed by a Council with the Hon’ble Minister for Culture as its chairperson and managed by an Executive Committee chaired by the Secretary, Ministry of Culture, Government of India. The primary mandate of the NCF is to nurture Public Private Partnerships (PPP), to mobilise resources from the public and private sector for the restoration, conservation, protection and development of India’s rich, natural, tangible and intangible heritage. The NCF believes that two of the vital pillars of national development are the promotion of cultural diversity and heritage conservation.
