The University Grants Commission (UGC),has proposed a portal, where knowledge in all Indian languages will be collected and passed on. According to PTI reports, the 'all-inclusive and interactive' portal will be the largest internet language site in the world.
In a letter to Vice Chancellors earlier this week, UGC Secretary Jaspal Singh Sandhu has asked all universities and colleges to share digitized and non-digitized material in various languages available with them for the ambitious 'Bharatvani' project.
"Bharatvani is a project with an objective of delivering knowledge in and about all languages in India using multimedia formats through a portal. This portal is proposed to be all inclusive, interactive, dynamic and moderated," Sandhu said in his letter to the Vice Chancellors.
Speaking about the project, he said, "It is proposed to develop as the largest language portal in the world by aggregating multimedia content from all Indian writers, government and non-governmental institutions, institutions like boards of education, textbook corporations, universities, academies, publication houses etc. The idea is to make India an Open Knowledge Society, in the era of Digital India," he added.
