The government has decided to declassify files related to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
The decision was taken after Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's family, at 7, Race Course Road.

The PM also said that the government will ask the Russian government to declassify files on Subhash Chandra Bose.
Will also request foreign Governments to declassify files on Netaji available with them. Shall begin this with Russia in December.Ã¢ Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) October 14, 2015
The declassification may help in solving the unending mystery surrounding Netaji's death in 1945, reportedly in a plane crash in Formosa, now Taiwan.
