Digitization of Impressions of Inscriptions on Paper

Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has plans to digitize all impressions in a systematic way. As a prelude to this, steps have been taken to mend all the impressions for safety and legibility of each letter on them. Once process of mending of all the impressions is completed, action will be initiated to digitize all impressions and preserve them in a better manner for posterity.

The language-wise details of the impressions are as under:-

Sanskrit :
Arabic & Persian etc.

Utmost care is taken to preserve them in conventional method from the beginning. Some of these are very old impressions which are in brittle or bad condition. They are taken care of by mending them as and when required.
