Indian Museum Publications


    ACCORDING to the report for 1908–9, the organisation of the Indian Museum has been in need of reform, and the views of the trustees in this respect are shared by the Government of India. The trustees have accordingly “accepted the Government of India's proposals as regards fresh legislation whereby a re-organisation of the museum may be effected. The two main principles that they have had before them in the suggestions they have made to the Government as regards this new, legislation have been (1) that each section of the museum should be under proper expert management, and (2) that the heads of the different Sections, should be ex officio trustees themselves. They believe that the new Act which it is proposed to introduce shortly, and of which they have received a draft, will enable them to give, effect to these principles.
