The trade in illicit antiquities is growing in India: the severity of the problem is rampant and continues to be unabated. It is often said that the illicit trade in antiquities is a source of income for poor families, and this has been suggested recently as a cause of looting in India. Heritage education in India aims to develop an understanding of the countries history, culture, traditions, lifestyles, and environment. Education is the key weapon the Government can deploy across the whole of the country to encourage the population to preserve the heritage caused by looting antiquities and the illicit trade in antiquities. In India, such heritage education is not only delivered by schools but also through NGOs, such as the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH). It also delivers a rounded education that equips students to face the current challenges of globalisation in a rapidly changing world.
