Hardeep Singh Puri – Union Minister:
Delighted to join my senior colleague Sh Prahlad S Patel Ji at the inauguration of the newly refurbished Janpath Hotel which will be a temporary home for the activities of IGNCA till it shifts to a new state-of-the-art, purpose built & world class complex by 2023.
The renovated Janpath Hotel will function as a major resource centre for arts as well as research & public activities. It will provide a forum for continued creative pursuits & critical dialogue between & amongst the diverse traditional & contemporary arts.
There was a need for modern infrastructure & better service integration including improved facilities for labs, archival rooms, special storage for archival material, documents, manuscripts, valuable art etc for a long time.
