New Delhi, July 24, 2023 — India currently has 40 sites on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Additionally, there are 52 sites on the UNESCO Tentative List, with six sites added in 2022.

It is a prerequisite for any property to be included in the Tentative List before UNESCO can consider it for World Heritage Site status. The Tentative List is continuously augmented. According to the UNESCO Operational Guidelines in 2021, a country can nominate only one cultural or natural property annually for the inscription process.

Furthermore, the inclusion of any site requires meeting the criteria of authenticity and integrity and providing justification for its Outstanding Universal Value.

Minister of Culture, Tourism, and Development, G Kishan Reddy, provided this information in the Lok Sabha today.
