NEW DELHI:  India’s rich and classical literature as well as the un-written regional literary works are set to be presented in different languages and preserved for posterity in the digital format if the University Grants Commission (UGC) has its way. The Commission, which governs higher education in the country, is launching the Bharatvani project with the object of delivering knowledge in and about all languages in India through the multimedia format on a portal. The idea is to develop the website as the largest language portal in the world by aggregating multimedia content from all Indian writers, government and non-governmental institutions and from educational institutions, textbook corporations, universities and publishing houses.

“The portal is proposed to be all inclusive, interactive, dynamic and moderated,” the UGC said in a communication to vice chancellors of all universities seeking their active involvement in the mission. The idea is to make India an open knowledge society, capitalising on the Digital India initiative. As per the 2001 census, there are 122 scheduled and non-scheduled languages and 234  mother tongues spoken in India, a reflection of India’s linguistic diversity. Universities have been asked to contribute books and materials in different scheduled Indian languages available in their campus and in affiliated colleges in digitised and non-digitised format by December 7. –  Courtesy      /     Published on 24/11/2015 , UGC letter regarding Bharatvani Project on Indian Languages
