The Sanskritik Missions are the Chapters / Primary Units of Srimanta Foundation for Culture and Society (herein after called Srimanta Foundation) at the local level in the grassroots. The name of the place of work becomes the prefix followed by the words ‘Sanskritik Mission’. For e.g.,‘(Name of Place) Sanskritik Mission. This is the third and the cutting edge level of the Trust, for it is at this level where both the inputs and implementation of the work of the Trust takes place. The size of the respective Sanskritik Mission will depend on the coverage of the Trust’s work at the local level and will differ from place to place. A minimum of three members is required to form this Sanskritik Mission who will be responsible to carry out the ‘Initial Work’ planned by the trust at the local level.
