Through the initiative of Lord Curzon (1859–1925), Viceroy of India from 1899 to 1905, the ASI finally became a legal entity for the protection of monuments with the promulgation of the Ancient Monuments Preservation Act in 1904 (redefined as the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act in 1958), which was modelled on the British Ancient Monuments Protection Act of 1882. At the beginning of the twentieth century, when the ASI was being institutionalized by eminent contemporary British archaeologists like John Marshall (1876–1958), Director-General of the ASI from 1902 to 1928, the strategies of state-driven and centralized conservation of Indian cultural relics were defined.
