Language Arts & More: British Council, New Delhi
The British Council is the United Kingdom's international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations. The headquarters of the British Council in India is in New Delhi with offices in Chennai, Kolkata and Mumbai. The British Council also runs British Libraries in co-operation with the India Council for Cultural Relations in five other Indian cities - Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Hyderabad and Pune. They offer a range of specialised projects in arts, education, English language and society to audiences across India and more than 100,000 members.
The Delhi centre is centrally located just minutes away from Connaught Place. We are well-connected by public transport links - including the Delhi metro - to all part of the city and NCR. Our centre is buzzing with confident students, professionals, and others, who come to access information in a relaxed environment and to network with like-minded people. The iconic building in New Delhi has been designed by renowned architect Charles Correa and was opened in 1993 displaying a unique mural by Howard Hodgkin on the façade symbolising the banyan tree – an enduring image of India -- along with a sculpture by Stephen Cox in the Charbagh called the Descent of the Ganges.
