Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has launched a web portal of Delhi Archives where people can get archival records of more than 200 years. According to the government, Delhi Archives is a custodian of records of the Delhi Government and was established in 1972 with the sole aim to preserve the archival heritage of the historic city.

Till date, more than 1.60 crore pages of records have been digitised, out of which, approximately 60 lakh pages have been uploaded, it stated.

Anyone can access these records through dedicated portal by registering his/her credentials on http://archives.delhi.gov.in/abhilekh.
