This issue is the 4th newsletter of the Indic Wikisource Community.

Re-licensing in Maharashtra -Marathi Fortnight is celebrated in Maharashtra from 14-28 January and Language Day on 27 February. Every year we conduct workshops in the state. This year it was not possible due to pandemics. So, we planned a re-licensing appeal campaign on these occasions. The appeals were sent to various groups, authors, heirs/copyright holders, publishing houses, NGOs, etc. The links of previous content donations were circulated. In the period, we got encouraging responses from six authors. Total of 16 books were scanned and uploaded.
