Government of India, Department of Culture launched a Scheme called ‘Guru Shishya Parampara Scheme’ through Zonal Cultural Centre to preserve and promote rare and vanishing art forms whether classical or folk/tribal so that the young talents be nurtured to acquire skills in their chosen field of art through some financial assistance by the ZCCs in the form of scholarship under the guidance of Experts and Masters in these fields.
To implement this scheme, Great Masters (Gurus) of different art forms of constituent states of NZCC, who are capable to train the interested shishyas are identified. The committee is constituted to process, evaluate and recommend the candidature of expert (Guru). Each Guru is expected to train five to eight shishyas. To motivate and incentize, a small scholarship is provided to the pupil and an honorarium to the Master(Guru) as per the norms fixed by Ministry of Culture, Government of India which are as under:
Guru (Master) @ Rs.5000/- per month
Accompanist @ Rs.2500/- each per month
Shishya @ Rs.1000/- each per month
NZCC has implemented this scheme in all its member States. About 273 Gurus and 1700 Shishyas in 130 extinct and dying folk/ tribal art forms have benefitted from this scheme up to now as per the table given below:
|S.No.||State||No. of Art Form||No. of Gurus||No. of Assistants||No. of Shishyas|
|(i)||Punjab/ U.T. Chandigarh||32||104||102||630|
|(iv)||Jammu & Kashmir||17||30||38||272|
A Monitoring Workshop-cum-Presentations of Gurus and Shishyas is organised for reviewing and evaluating the progress made in this direction. An Expert Committee comprising eminent Art Experts is constituted for this purpose.
This scheme has provided security to a large number of old and retired artistes. Most of the artistes covered under this scheme are from rural areas and teaching shishyas from within reasonable catchment area of their residence.
