Further, Archaeological Survey of India has identified 100 monuments as “Adarsh Smarak” for upgradation of existing facilities/amenities like Wi-Fi, cafeteria, interpretation centre, brail signage, modern toilets etc. on the basis of actual requirement and feasibility on case to case basis. In the case of fund allocation, no specific fund is allotted for the purpose and the expenditure is incurred from regular budget (for conservation and maintenance) of Archaeological Survey of India.

Further, private security guards, Armed Guards and CISF personnel have also been engaged at select monuments for safety and protection.
