Some regions of our country are abundant in manuscripts but lack the infrastructure and manpower to maintain them, such as Leh and the North-East. The Mission has set up special field laboratories in such places in collaboration with National Research Laboratory for Conservation of Cultural Property (NRLC), Lucknow. At present, there exist two field laboratories:

      Central Institute of Buddhist Studies,

      Choglamsar, Leh (Ladakh) 194001, Jammu and Kashmir.
