As of now, so many institutes have converted the paper content into the digital content which leads to duplicity. One of the core exercises of this project is to remove the redundancy and to adapt the latest technology available on the World Wide Web.
Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan Vice-Chancellor P.N. Shastry said "the larger goal was to take Sanskrit texts to the reach of every researcher, and ultimately benefit society."
The main aim of the discussion was to check the progress of the project and to upgrade the project to the latest technology and platform so that content in Sanskrit can be searched with a single click of the mouse.
