The India International Center was founded in 1958 by the then Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru. It was dedicated and opened to the public in the year 1962. The India International Center is among the best convention centers in Delhi. This non-profit institution works for the cultural interaction between nations. The institution broadly provides three kinds of service to its members and others. The first one is to provide intellectual service through seminars, symposium, meeting, debates and discussions. It also houses one of the best libraries in India that also undertakes regular publications. The second is cultural service, which is undertaken through the regular song and dance performances apart from Film screenings. The third and last is community service through its hostel and catering facilities where people meet and mingle together.
There are regular activities taking place in its multifarious
facilities, round the year. The Center is non-official in its character
and don't affiliate itself to any government, political, economic or
religious organization. The Center's reputation over the years has
become such that several intellectual and cultural institutions in the
country and, occasionally some abroad, have sought to organize functions
in the Center, often in collaboration with it. But lately it has become
more of a meeting point and gossip gallery for foreign diplomats and
Indian bureaucrats. Try and catch some of the film screenings and book
reading sessions, they are quite interesting and informative.
