The rudiments of archives can be traced back to the 4th session of the Indian Historical Records Commission held at Delhi in the year 1922. For the first time the Government of U.P. was urged by a resolution to establish a Central Record Office for fostering historical research in the State. As a sequel to a number of resolutions passed during subsequent sessions of the Commission, the Government of U.P. in the General Administration Department decided vide their G.O. No. 3525 (5) / III-120-1946 dated June. 5, 1947 to set up a Central Record Office at Allahabad so that records of historical importance which have ceased to be of administrative use may be concentrated in a central place for the purpose of historical research and their maintenance in a manner most conductive to their better preservation.

Director's Desk

"We should leave our cultural and historical treasure of Archives for our posterity as an asset not as a liability and therefore it should be handed over to the right agency where it can be preserved for the use of posterity."
