This was formulated for the growth and development of the society.We are glad to ask you all if you could also give your contributions to us by writing us articles and helping the growth of Indian language and culture.

Criteria for resource allocation[edit]

  1. Active Wikimedians who are in need of support will be given priority.
  2. The support is given in the spirit of significantly improving each individual's capacity to contribute more actively to the best of his ability. So, this is not a contest, reward, or an entitlement based on past contributions or the potential to contribute more in future.
