CC0 applies only if the Govt of Karanataka Owns current copyright of it and
want to make it public domain .
In this case Govt does not owns its copyright and It is already public
domain . What they are doing is making them available via Digitalization ,
ie it is an Open access initiative of rare public domain books
There is no role for copyright or licenses in this
