The National Archives of India is the repository of the non-current records of the Government of India and is holding them in trust for the use of administrators and scholars. It is an Attached Office of the Ministry of Culture, Government of India. It was set up on 11 March 1891 in Calcutta (Kolkata) as the Imperial Record Department. With the subsequent transfer of the National Capital from Calcutta to New Delhi in 1911, it was shifted to its present building at the crossing of Janpath and Rajpath in 1926.
As the nodal agency for the implementation of the Public Records Act,1993 and Public Record Rules, 1997, the National Archives of India is responsible for streamlining the management of records of central government and public sector undertakings.
The National Archives of India, New Delhi also functions as the Secretariat of the Indian Historical Records Commission (IHRC). IHRC is an all-India Forum of creators, custodians and users of records which were set up in 1919 to advise the Union Government on all issues connected with the management of records and their use for historical research.
The IHRC is headed by the Union Minister of Culture and comprises 134 members including agencies of the Government of India, nominees of the Union Government, representatives from the State/UT Archives, Universities and Learned Institutions.
The IHRC since its inception has held 63 Sessions and has contributed significantly to the growth of public interest in the conservation and use of archives. As part of the Resolutions adopted at the 63rd Session of IHRC held at Lucknow from 18-19 December 2023, it was unanimously agreed that the IHRC should adopt a Logo and Motto to visually communicate the unique identity of IHRC and what it represents. A well-designed Logo and Motto of IHRC would quickly attract viewers’ attention and communicate its core value in an interesting way. It can pique the interest of the public and invite them to learn and know about the IHRC.
