Dear Kartikbhai,

That is not the proposal by Gujarati wiki community, it is from CIS. Also, if you notice, in that proposal, there is no payment to the community, who will really be putting pain in digitising/uploading/typing/correcting the content. And on the contrary, CIS staff will be paid a reasonable share from the grant.

I have my name mentioned in that proposal, for which I have to had provide declaration on a discussion page of CIS's grant application. I am on my mobile at the moment so can't find the link to it to share. If anyone wants to see my comment, let me know and I will share the link.

Yes, of course, the idea on which CIS has built the proposal was from me, but I had only spoken once soon after wikimenia and then came to know about proposal just when it was ready. I have had no more involvement in that proposal apart from initial idea, which was jointly shared by Sushant Savla, a fellow admin on gu.wikisource.
