-ARCHAEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF INDIA. 

Issued in Public Interesst

Government of india has issued Gazette Notification No. 13, dated March 30,

2010 on The Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains

(Amendment & Validation) Act, 2010 after the Parliament of India passed it.

This Act amends The Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and

temains Act, 1958 (both the Acts are available at (www.asi.nic.in). A list of

Monuments is also available in the official website.

The purpose of this Act is to preserve and protect our heritage and it reflects

the government's determination to ensure that no construction, including

public projects, takes place within the prohibited areas around the monuments

of national importance.

The act specifies the beginning from the boundary limit of the centrally

protected area' or centrally protected monument, in all directions, a minimum

of 100 meters as the 'prohibited area' beyond which, in all directions,

minimum of 200 meters has been specified as the 'regulatecd area' (See figure).

These limits can be further extended having regard to classification of any

monument or protected area.

No construction, whatsoever, including any public project, will be permitted

in the prohibited areas of the protected monuments and the permission for

construction or reconstruction activities in regulated areas shall be governed

by heritage bye-laWS.

The amendment Act defines 'construction' and 'reconstruction' to avoid any

ambiguity in interpretation. The Act also defines the terms 'repair and

renovation' which means alterations to a pre-existing structure or building, but

shall not include 'construction' or 'reconstruction.

Applications seeking permission for repair and renovation- in the prohibited

areas and regulated areas shall be made before the respective competent

authority who will be nominated by the government in due course. For

construction or reconstruction, only in the regulated areas (i.e. not in the

prohibited area'), the request could also be made to the same authority. In this

context, the act also provides for constitution of 'National Monument Authority'

which will consider all the cases referred to it by the competent authority for its

final recommendation to finaly dispose off such requests accordingly.

The construction activities shall remain frozen till the competent authorities

are nominated, National Monument Authority constituted and Heritage bye laws

framed.

The iegislation provides for icdentification of all the unauthorized structures

that may have come up in the prohibited and regulated areas since June, 1992

(when the notification of prohibited/regulated areas was published) without the

prior permission of this office and initiate action against all such unauthorized

structures or buildings, as per provisions of the Act.

The quantum of punishment to be meted out to the violators has been

reviewed and made more stringent raising three months imprisonment to two

years and fine of Rs. 5000/- ( five thousand rupees) to Rs. 1,00,000/- (one lakh

rupees), or both. Every citizen is, therefore, requested to extend his full co0

operation in implementing the provisions of the aforesaid act so that our

precious heritage could be preserved for posterity.
