During the last five FYs (2018-19 to 2022-23) NCF has received Rs.3.70 crore from Non-Government Sources.

Further, Government has recently launched a programme titled ‘Adopt a Heritage Programme 2.0’ with an objective to encourage Public Private Partnership for providing basic tourist amenities e.g., washrooms, drinking water, pathways, benches etc. for enhancing visitors’ experience at Centrally Protected Monuments.
