In the memory of Smt Indira Gandhi, on her birthday, Indira Gandhi National Center for the Arts (IGNCA) made its first mark on November 19, 1985. 

Late Prime Minister Shri Rajiv Gandhi announced IGNCA to encompass all forms of arts and experience. The art form has its integrity, interrelated with nature, social structure, and cosmology. 

Furthermore, the IGNCA Trust was constituted and registered in New Delhi on March 24, 1987. 

IGNCA propagates a holistic worldview powerfully articulated throughout Indian tradition and emphasized by modern Indian leaders from Mahatma Gandhi to Rabindranath Tagore, an autonomous body of the Ministry of Culture, Government of India. 

Since then, IGNCA has branched in many cities like Bangaluru, Goa, Guwahati, Puducherry, Ranchi, Srinagar, Thrissur, Varanasi, and now in Vadodara.
