Pune, 1st December 2022: After two years, a committee has been appointed for the preservation and conservation of forts in Maharashtra. Departmental committees have also been constituted along with the state-level committee under the chairmanship of the culture minister.


The committee was formed in 2015 for the preservation and conservation of forts. In 2018, this committee was extended. After the transfer of power in the state in 2019, the appointments of non-governmental members to the committee were cancelled in 2020. After that, there was a constant demand to appoint a committee.
