Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan - New Delhi

Updated on: Feb 13, 2013


Today it’s well-established fact that no Indian language can flourish without the help of ancient language and literature including the Sanskrit language. Sanskrit also provides the theoretical foundation of ancient sciences.

Fully conscious of this responsibility, the Govt. of India, in pursuance of the recommendations of the Sanskrit Commission (1956-57) constituted a Central Sanskrit Board, which recommended the establishment of a Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan. Accordingly, the Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan was established in October 1970 as an autonomous organization registered under the Societies Registration Act, 1860 for the development, preservation and promotion of Sanskrit learning all over the country and abroad. The Sansthan is fully financed by the Government of India and works as a vital agency of the Central Government.

The basic idea behind setting up of such an institution was to work towards the development and promotion of Sanskrit all over the country. It is fully funded by Government of India. It also assists the Ministry of Human Resource & Development in formulating and implementing various plans and schemes for the development of Sanskrit studies.

Today the sansthan has assumed the role of a nodal body for the effective implementation of various recommendations made by the Sanskrit Commission set up by the Government of India, Ministry of Education in 1956 to consider the propagation and development of Sanskrit language and education in all its aspects.
