    Hi Sen,

    Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts, New Delhi (IGNCA) is the premier government funded arts organization in India, as an autonomous institution under the Union Ministry of Culture. This is established in the memory of Indira Gandhi, late Indian Prime Minister, and with Kapila Vatsyayan as its founding director.

    The IGNCA was inaugurated on November 19, 1987, in Bangalore, by the Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

    It has 3 Regional Centres:

    Southern Regional Centre (SRC) Bangalore
    Centre's office Varanasi
    North East Regional Centre Guwahati

    The IGNCA has six functional units. They are:

    1. Kala Nidhi - the multiform library
    2. Kala Kosa - study and publication of fundamental texts in Indian languages
    3. Janapada Sampada engaged in lifestyle studies
    4. Kaladarsana - transforms researches and studies emanating from the IGNCA into visible forms through exhibitions
    5. Cultural Informatics Lab - applies technology tools for cultural preservation and propagation
    6. Sutradhara - acts as a spine supporting and coordinating all the activities.
