The National Council of Churches in India (NCCI) is the Ecumenical Forum of the Protestant and Orthodox Churches in India . The Council was established in 1914 as the National Missionary Council. In 1923, the Council constituted itself as the National Christian Council of India , Burma and Ceylon . The Councils of Burma and Sri Lanka separated and in 1979 the Council transformed itself into what is known as the National Council of Churches in India . It is an Inter-confessional autonomous Council and an ecumenical expression constantly initiating, promoting and coordinating various forms of ministries of Witness and Service in the wider community and society. The Council also serves as a common platform for thought and action and as such it brings together the Churches and other Christian organizations for mutual consultation, assistance and action in all matters related to the life and witness of the Churches in India. Inaugurated by Honorable Bishop Taranath S. Sagar on 21-09-2013.
