India struggles to recover stolen artifacts

Since India’s independence, the Government of India has recovered hundreds of stolen artifacts from all over the world. Recently, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) sent a team to Singapore to identify and recover stolen artifacts.

According to Prahlad Singh Patel, India’s Minister of Culture, India has recovered more than 350 artifacts from the United States, France, Germany, Singapore, Australia and Canada since 2014. Around 190 of these pieces were from the US, most of which were smuggled by notorious art dealer Subhash Kapoor.

Patel also said that the Australian Academy of Sciences is trying to recover about 700 items from the Aural Stein collection of Central Asian artifacts belonging to the academy. The collection was loaned to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London about 100 years ago.

India’s efforts to recover the stolen artifacts have been supported by the international community. in 2017, the U.S. Congress passed a bill allowing the U.S. government to return the stolen artifacts to India.
