India/ 6.2 Public cultural expenditure  

6.2.3 Sector breakdown

Table 2: Direct state cultural expenditure and transfers (central level)*: by sector, YEAR, in 1000 of national currency

Note: It is hard to provide figures here. The Ministry of Culture, Government of India budgets are available, but budgets at State Government and Municipal levels cannot be easily computed. The Ministry of Culture has effectively frozen the number of institutions for which it provides direct expenditure, but it does go for grants, and partnerships.
