From the state budget speech here (
), it appears this is a
grant to Sanskrit Bharathi
>> 182. To develop Sanskrit Wikipedia, Rs 1
crore would be provided as a
grant to Sanskrit Bharathi.

Just checked with my sources in the government - and
what I hear is that
the allocated funds *isn't* for Sanskrit Wikipedia, but a project "on the
lines" of Sanskrit Wikipedia, but perhaps with editing control.

Yea. I remember that announcement 2 years back
and then it got converted
into an internal project.
But, a good opportunity for advocacy here. Perhaps some chapter members
should meet the department officials and try and get co-opted into the
decision-making process. Often, it is lack of information and trust that
scares them. Unlike 2 years, back with the chapter in place and most of us
quite well networked, we should get involved closely and see if we can get
them to invest in improving the sanskrit and kananda wikis.
The government usually prefers a project with editing control rather than
one without any direct control over content decisions made.
