Thanks for those links. I am aware about that. But not get enough time
to read it yet. But are you sure, it specified unicode 5.1 . I am
curious becuase new rupee symbol getting encoded only in unicode 6.1.
Usually govt standards does not specify versions.

Two things I meant to add:
1. The eGov standards body for India has recently notified Unicode
5.1.0 as the default standard for all eGov applications henceforth.
(Sadly, their website is DoA - http://egovstandards.gov.in/
) I am
hopeful that this will be the start of some initiative within
Government and would, hopefully, spread.
A cache of their Approach Paper on Localization is here:
And a cache their Character Encoding Standard For Indian Languages is here:
2. On input methods - is there anything of a best practice or even a
Government notification about an input standard?
