Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia Wednesday launched a web portal of Delhi Archives where people can get archival records of more than 200 years. According to the government, Delhi Archives is a custodian of records of the Delhi Government and was established in 1972 with the sole aim to preserve the archival heritage of the historic city.

The government issued a statement, saying four crore pages of records are being digitised and microfilmed and would be uploaded on the website of the department within a span of 30 months for access of the public. Till date, more than 1.60 crore pages of records have been digitised, out of which, approximately 60 lakh pages have been uploaded, it stated.
