He is interested in making <>   as homepage
for indian language wikipedias.
But his condition is that his name must be there in that page. Is it
possible for us to give the credit on that page ?

I don't think Wikipedians will accept that idea. If that is the case, it is
better to go with the current system.

I don't think is registered by any one. Kindly verify.

But, do we actullay require this site? What is its purpose?  Is it just for
listing link to Indic languages wikis. 

NOTE: Some Indic languages like Tamil, Bengali, and Urdu are the official
languages in more than one country.

involved until there's some kind of organization or chapter setup in
India.  It gets a lot more complex if the Foundation has to come in,
which is why it's best to work informally with the registrar/owners

Maybe you guys could try asking InRegistrar about this and see how far
that goes?  Maybe they already have a process setup for this.
