Indian households spend a staggering $1,000 a year on antiques, but not everyone can afford to buy it.
As of the end of June, a whopping 10.7 million people across India were out of pocket by about $6 billion, according to the Economic Times, citing a government report.
The total for that month was $6.9 billion, or $1.3 per person.
That’s more than the combined spending of the entire country of Germany, Spain, Italy, and France combined.
While this is far from the only place the country’s government is spending money on antique items, it is a small part of a much larger government spending on antiquities.
In fact, it’s one of the main reasons India’s antiquities sector has grown so much over the past few years, with over 2,000 antiques being sold each year.
Antiques in India Today Antiques are an important part of Indian society, and the country has one of India’s largest collections of ancient treasures, with a total worth of about $30 billion.
This includes some of the world’s largest museums, and has made it an attractive investment destination for buyers.
The government has been pushing to modernize the antiquities market, but many of its attempts have not been successful.
The first step has been to modernise the antiquity market itself.
India was one of only two countries that banned the sale of antiquities, in the 1950s, after a series of cultural and historical attacks.
India now has a new, stricter law, which states that “the sale of items for private consumption is prohibited.”
This new law has been hailed as a big step forward in protecting heritage.
The new law is meant to protect heritage from those who want to profit from the sale.
But this has not been without controversy, and not everyone is happy about the changes.
According to The Times of India, many Indians are concerned about the new legislation.
“What is the point of making money off the sale?” asked an editor of a newspaper who did not want to be named.
“If the money goes to buy luxury goods, why are you doing it?
Why not give the money to the poor?”
He added, “I want to see some money go to the people who have lost their property, to help them rebuild.”
India’s cultural heritage is often a source of anger and tension in India.
The country is notorious for its anti-Islamic sentiment, and its rich history of xenophobia has contributed to its isolation and resentment towards foreigners.
In 2013, a group of Hindu youths set fire to a Christian church in the capital, New Delhi, in a protest against what they believed was Christian intolerance.
The arson sparked outrage across the country, and hundreds of people were arrested.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised to modernizing the country by building a “modern India” and building an infrastructure to allow for the sale and tourism of antiquity items.
He has also promised to develop an “India First” culture that will protect its heritage.
He also announced a national museum of India.
