INTACH will take action if heritage assets in Himachal are defaced

 Thursday, August 11, 2022 


The Indian National Trust for Art and Culture Heritage (INTACH) will take lawful action if heritage assets in Himachal are spoiled or transformed.

The state convener of INTACH Malvika Pathania said that it is disastrous that many heritage buildings, many of which are owned by the Himachal government, are being defaced and reformed in spite of a prohibition. She added that INTACH would work toward promoting heritage tourism.

Pathania said that the Himachal state government had issued an announcement in May this year, saying that no heritage building that is more than 100 years’ old or more could be changed even though there is any permission from the deputy commissioner. The deputy commissioners have also been asked to take the guidance of heritage and archaeological specialists while approving any alteration in heritage buildings.

Pathania suspected that in spite of the government announcement, many heritage buildings are being transformed or moderated without asking the experts. In recent times, the Devi Kothi temple in Chamba, a protected heritage building, was vandalized according to the demand of a local politician.
