Project Costs

The financing of a project on such a scale calls for the involvement of multiple agencies —the Government as well as international institutions, foundations and private donors. Moreover, the requirement for financing runs into the long term, as —in addition to project costs —there will be recurring operating expenses. For this reason, it is essential to maintain a corpus fund to cover such expenses, and half of the monies collected will be used for this purpose.
Therefore, it is our aim to initially collect Rs 100 crore through institutional and private funding, half of which will be spent in the first phase of the project, the balance to be set aside for the corpus.

The Costs
The project cost disbursements are envisaged as follows:
Phase I: Three years
Total estimated cost of conservation, restoration and building: Rs. 68 Crores
Total corpus sought for the running of the conservatory: Rs. 100 Crores

Be a part of this vision
In our country, it is a sad fact that in the past, most attempts at conservation of tangible and intangible heritage have been initiated by people from outside. Is it not time to reverse this trend and take charge of our own assets?
Surely no investment can be as fulfilling as that which revives and nourishes the values so dear to our ancestors and so vital for posterity. It is an investment in our future, a pledge to our coming generations, a marker of their identity and their pride. That is the compelling reason for asking for your financial assistance by way of a grant or donation.
Helping to fund this project gives you a concrete opportunity to contribute towards the saving of a legacy, and the establishment of unique and open institutions of learning where excellence will be supreme, where the best talent will learn from the best mentors. All of us then become stake-holders in specific programmes that tackle issues of cultural conservation within the contexts of practical economic development.
We see this project as a heritage area without borders, expanding beyond geography to embrace and welcome links and dialogue with the larger world of humanity. And we invite you to join hands with us on this journey.
