Rethink India’s nationally protected monuments list

There is almost no discussion about the existing list, and why a monument is deemed to have national significance. As a result, we now have an unwieldy list that requires drastic rationalisation. This must change

The list includes several minor monuments with no national significance. We estimate that this applies to at least a quarter of the current list. The list, for instance, includes 75 graves of colonial-era soldiers or officials of no particular importance. (ASI/Dharwad Circle)
