The purpose of this Scheme, which has been implemented by Sangeet Natak Akademi since its inception, is to encourage the publication of books and periodicals on music, dance and drama in all the languages of India, besides English. Books and periodicals on these subjects are often not commercially viable, and by meeting the printing costs, this scheme makes it possible for authors and publishers to present their work to public. Financial assistance under the scheme is sanctioned after expert assessment of manuscripts, as far as books are concerned, and published issues in the case of periodicals. A large number of books and periodicals in various Indian languages have been published with financial assistance made available under this scheme over the past fifty years.
