In Jammu, Principal Secretary of Culture, Suresh Kumar Gupta, led a comprehensive review of the Archives, Archaeology, and Museums (AAM) Department, signaling a concerted effort to bolster public awareness of the region's rich heritage and cultural legacy. 

The meeting, attended by key departmental figures including Director AAM, Raj Kumar Katoch, and other senior officials from the Culture Department, focused on the multifaceted operations of the department which spans archival records, reference libraries, and the preservation of monuments across Jammu and Kashmir.

During the session, Director AAM, Katoch, presented an overview of the department's endeavors in preserving the state's monumental heritage. Highlighting the government's commitment, Gupta noted that out of 495 heritage monuments listed by the Government of India, 56 are currently under the preservation efforts of the Archaeological Survey of India, with an additional 54 identified under the JK Act notification for preservation, totaling 110 monuments undergoing restoration.

The meeting delved into specialized schemes dedicated to the conservation of monumental structures, particularly focusing on the Scheme for Revival, Restoration, Preservation, and Maintenance, and Heritage Jammu and Kashmir. 

Gupta's emphasis on enhancing public awareness about Jammu and Kashmir's heritage monuments underlined the need for effective dissemination to foster a deeper public appreciation and understanding of the region's historical significance.

The appointment of Additional District Development Commissioners (ADDCs) as nodal officers across all districts was noted as a strategic move to expedite restoration efforts, ensuring that the preservation activities are coordinated efficiently at the local level.

Further showcasing his commitment to the cause, Gupta conducted an on-site inspection of the AAM office at the historic Old Secretariat Mubarak Mandi. His visit to the Archives Reference Section, Historic Documents Section, and State Archives Repository in Jammu was a testament to the ongoing efforts to safeguard and promote the cultural heritage of Jammu and Kashmir.

This review meeting marks a significant step towards acknowledging and preserving the cultural and historical legacy of Jammu and Kashmir, aiming to instill a sense of pride and awareness among the public about their rich heritage.
