Where is Sangeet Akademi?

Vittal said: (Feb 5, 2014)  
It was set up by the Indian education ministry in 31 May 1952 and became functional the following year, with the appointment of its first chairman, Dr. P. V. Rajamannar. Dr Rajendra Prasad, the first President of India, inaugurated it on 28 January 1953 in a special function held in the Parliament House. The academy's Fellowship and Award are considered very prestigious.

The Sangeet Natak Akademi, setup in 1953, aims at the promotion and development of dance, drama, and music. It holds seminars and festivals, presents awards to the eminent artists and extends financial assistance to traditional teachers and scholarships to students. It also operates a scheme of exchange of troupes.

I think that the answer is wrong because it is responsible for the development of dance and drama too apart from sangeet (music).
