Technology Handshake

Under TDIL Programme of MeitY, Technology Development for Indian Languages has the objective of developing Information Processing Tools and Techniques to facilitate human-machine interaction without language barrier. Presently TDIL Programme is working on following research areas with the aim of enabling masses to build a knowledge society and ensuring communication without language barrier. Till now, these resources were available to the researchers only. Now, MeitY has changed the policy to make it available to the industry as well. It will be free of cost for the start-ups, however a fraction of resource creation cost is charged to others. It can be accessed at NPLT. For any information/assistance, please contact .

TDIL Programme welcome industry for their valuable feedback/interest on the above listed technologies for possible commercialization. We are looking forward for more and more association with IT Industry to proliferate the awareness & availability of Indian language products & technologies to benefit the masses. Expectation from industry is to take forward these technologies with a commitment to come out with the product or service which will make the world-wide knowledge accessible to the common man.
