Tamil Development and Information Department of Government of Tamil Nadu
has issued a Government Order (Number: 105, Date: 01. 07. 2016) to Tamil
University, Thanjavur and all other government departments and institutions
to release all their publications, archives and collections under Creative
Commons by Share-Alike license.

This is a great move.

I hope the TN govt. takes similar initiatives with FOSS adoption in
their IT infra and applications.
Around 2006-2009 (?) time frame, Elcot <http://www.elcot.in/> under
then head, pushed all the vendors to support FOSS on their hardware.
One small example high end printer driver support (plotters).

I wonder if they are still active with FOSS.
