These conservation services are mainly preventive in nature. The manuscripts are treated in the repositories itself and the storage is reorganized to ensure their maintenance. However, manuscripts requiring curative treatment may be taken to a local Manuscript Conservation Centre (MCC) or to the Mission's laboratory at New Delhi, only with permission of the respective authorities.
