"All the original documents pertaining to the Quit India Movement and the Azad Hind Fauj will be on display for the first time. These are rare files which we have woven into a story tracing momentous events. It is mind boggling and is a great way of sensitising the youth about our history," said Raghavendra Singh, Director General,

In 1997, the NAI had received 990 declassified files related to the Indian National Army (Azad Hind Fauj) from the Defence Ministry.
