That is not the proposal by Gujarati wiki community, it is from CIS.
Also, if you notice, in that proposal, there is no payment to the
community, who will really be putting pain in
digitising/uploading/typing/correcting the content. And on the
contrary, CIS staff will be paid a reasonable share from the grant.
I have my name mentioned in that proposal, for which I have to had
provide declaration on a discussion page of CIS's grant application. I
am on my mobile at the moment so can't find the link to it to share.
If anyone wants to see my comment, let me know and I will share the link.
Yes, of course, the idea on which CIS has built the proposal was from
me, but I had only spoken once soon after wikimenia and then came to
know about proposal just when it was ready. I have had no more
involvement in that proposal apart from initial idea, which was
jointly shared by Sushant Savla, a fellow admin on gu.wikisource.

Please visit the link in below email, where

for content upload. This is the task that we all
are doing free
of cost so
far. Because you have uploaded hundreds (may be
pages so far
as we have created 50+ books on gu.wikisource,
all our efforts
will be paid
now by WMF (in fact should have been paid so far
as well). If
you have any
doubt, reach out to User:Bluerasberry and
User:Ijon on meta
clearly suggests that Bots are under
the paid activity considered by WMF.
