Regional Office in Chandigarh
The Regional Office in Chandigarh was established in 1980 to represent the ICCR locally in the region and to strengthen its activities in the Union Territory of Chandigarh and the States of Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. The Regional Office coordinates cultural performances by visiting foreign delegations, outgoing cultural delegations from the region, distinguished visitors, exhibitions and seminars. It coordinates closely with local cultural and educational organizations and the Government of the Union Territory of Chandigarh for carrying out ICCR’s mandate of activities.
One of the major activities of the Office is to look after the international students in the region, both ICCR scholars and self-financing students. It coordinates closely with the Universities and academic institutions about the welfare of these students and also holds several activities for their benefit.
