Visitors at TajNew Delhi: The Archaeological Survey of India has issued orders to allow photography within the
premises of centrally protected monuments, hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi
questioned the logic behind the existing restrictions at an event.
Photography will be allowed in all of the monuments and archeological sites
administered by the ASI, except the mausoleum at Taj Mahal, the Ajanta Caves and
the Leh Palace, the order said.
The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) administers and manages 3,686 ancient
monuments and archaeological sites, and remains of national importance.
Union minister Mahesh Sharma tweeted, “Inspired by the vision of Hon’ble PM and his
guidance this morning…it has been decided to allow photography within the premises
of all centrally protected monuments, except Ajanta Caves, Leh Palace and
mausoleum of Taj Mahal.”
The Prime Minister, while inaugurating Dharovar Bhawan, a new building at the ASI’s
headquarters in New Delhi, on Thursday, questioned why it prohibits people from taking
photographs at certain monuments when technology allowed satellites to take pictures
from far away.
He said he felt that restricting people from clicking photographs was not right.
Professional photographers, historians and academicians were required to take
permission from the ASI under a 2016 order and they stand to gain the most by the
order.
In 2016, the ASI made it mandatory for photographers to be licensed to operate commercially in
protected monuments.
