This is excellent!! Many congratulations for all those behind this. I am
very sure that this will trigger other players too and will push the Open
Knowledge movement, particularly OER, in India.
Kudos to WMI Chapter, Pranav, Savithri and others who made this happen. I
see this as an important sign of maturing Wikimedia movement in India.
Congratulations again! This definitely needs celebration!!

>> Hi folks,
>> Savithri just gave me some wonderful news. The new National Repository
of Open Education Resources has been launched, and Dr. Tharoor, the HRD
Minister announced its licensed under CC-BY-SA! http://nroer.in/home/
>> Iv been following up with Dr. Tharoor and NCERT for about 6 months now,
pushing for this. Thanks to Gautam, Tinu, Savithri, Dr. Nagarjuna and
everyone else who helped make this happen. It is certainly a major win for
us as a chapter to be a part of this and a major win for OER in India.
>> Kind Regards,
>> Pranav Curumsey
