ICCR

Indian Council for Cultural Relations

The ICCR was founded in 1950 by Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, independent India’s first Education Minister. The Council helps formulate and implement policies pertaining to India’s external cultural relations, to foster mutual understanding between India and other countries and to promote cultural exchanges with other peoples.
The ICCR is about a communion of cultures, a creative dialogue with other nations.
