We would like to find out what are the positive things that are developed by these FOURTEEN centers in different languages that are being used by people of INDIA.
 
Did these centeres solve the problems of Localisation of Languages in INDIA ? What was the General Direction given to these centeres when money was FUNDED to these centeres ?
 
Does the DIT has any signed documents o these FOURTEEN Centeres ? If YES, Can we have a copy of that please.
 
I hope I get reply for my questions about RCILTS.
 
Thanks
Sincerely
 
V. M. Kumaraswamy
