Two things I meant to add:

1. The eGov standards body for India has recently notified Unicode
5.1.0 as the default standard for all eGov applications henceforth.
(Sadly, their website is DoA - http://egovstandards.gov.in/) I am
hopeful that this will be the start of some initiative within
Government and would, hopefully, spread.

A cache of their Approach Paper on Localization is here:

And a cache their Character Encoding Standard For Indian Languages is here:

2. On input methods - is there anything of a best practice or even a
Government notification about an input standard?

Thank you.

Best,

Gautam
