The Chandigarh’s Capitol Complex has now been added in the consideration list of World Heritage status for the year 2016. However, the UT administration of Chandigarh has proposed the presentation in front of the members of the UNESCO’s International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS).
The management of Chandigarh is waiting for this honor since 2006 but it got delayed because of the non-clearance from the Ministry of Culture or UNESCO. Moreover, it has been expected that the approval to the report given by UT to the UNESCO team will get finalize by the June 2016.
The dossier which has been submitted will be taken into consideration when the Ministry of UNESCO will get satisfy on the stability of the building for longer run and also looking for other policies too which will decide that the Capitol Complex will get nominate for the World Heritage status 2016.
