A ‘Repatriation Campaign’ has been launched by the Government in order to accomplish this. Indian Culture Ministry Secretary Govind Mohan said that, “It is of huge importance to the Government. The thrust of this effort to repatriate India’s artifacts comes from the personal commitment of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has made it a major priority.”
