Prime Minister Narendra Modi will release the digital copies of 100 secret files related to Subhash Chandra Bose on his 120th birth anniversary.
The initiative will meet the long-standing public demand to access these files as well as facilitate scholars to carry out further research on Bose. The National Archives of India also plans to release digital copies of 25 declassified files on Bose in the public domain every month. The first lot of 33 files were declassified by the Prime Minister’s Office and handed over to the National Archives of India on December 4, last year.
The Ministries of Home Affairs and External Affairs too initiated the process of declassification of files relating to Bose in their respective collection.
