Seeking permissions for display of Magna Carta:

A proposal from the Government of Rajasthan has been sent to the British Library to seek permission to showcase the book in the museum. The team at the British Library will only grant this permission after they have viewed and are satisfied with the arrangements made here.

Magna Carta all insured:

To keep the book on display and for public viewing will be much to the benefit of the visitors in terms of their knowledge as they will get to read and know about the human rights. Magna Carta is brought into the country only after being insured.
