To piggyback on what Justin is saying (and also via Phabricator:

I am not a Hindi speaker, but I can at least discern Devanagari text and the English loanwords in it. Justin's first link is to "Category:Intelligence" with subcategory "Artificial intelligence". His second link (Computer Programming/IDE/Visual Basic .NET/...) bears only a link to a Japanese online IDE. His third link (Computer Graphics/2013-2014/"Page Foot", a page footer which is transcluded elsewhere) has an email address prefixed with a link to @Jayprakash12345's userpage--maybe it is his own email address?

The problems of most pages only consisting of source code is indeed inherited from the English Wikiversity courses to which the pages are linked. Nevertheless, from seeing at least [the lack of effort to even localize the comments in the code samples], and perhaps from seeing the lack of something more substantial in the way of content revolving around those code samples, and perhaps more so from Jayprakash12345 being the only consistent contributor going back at least a month, I must thus agree with his assessment that opening hiwikiversity would be a disaster. My personal opinion is that other Hindi projects (such as hiwikisource and hiwikiquote) could be populated more easily and meaningfully at this point, but I would digress to elaborate on that and the whole process of site requests more generally here.

(Edits since the original comment was made: It appears judging from that 1) the subcategory "Artificial intelligence" has been deleted and 2) the part in [brackets] above is being addressed slowly.)

Is this really ready? I don't read Hindi but the main category has 84 subcategories and 25 are empty (many only have subcategories which are themselves empty, such asइंटेलिजेंस) There are 578 pieces of content, many of which are just one or two lines, such asकंप्यूटर_प्रोग्रामिंग/IDE/विजुअल_बेसिक orकंप्यूटर_ग्राफिक्स/2013-2014/पेज_फ़ुट which is mostly someone's personal email address. Remove categories and erroneously-categorized userpages and that becomes 490. This includes almost 100 pages which are part of some Linux code such asलिनक्स/linux-0.01.tar/boot/boot.s. Remove *those* and it's 401 which includes purely cosmetic templates and pages like The actual amount of content seems like something that one person could make over a long weekend. How is this supposed to be a live project? This seems like a misstep.

Creating a new project is a big responsibility and with 500 pages in five and a half years? And most of them are either copy-pasted Linux code or one line long? That is not a thriving community. This is a recipe for disaster.
