WikiSangamotsavam 2013, the annual gathering of users and well wishers of Malayalam Wikimedia projects, will take place on 21, 22 and 23 December, 2013 in Y.M.C.A Hall, Alappuzha, Kerala. Please click here to go to official page at Meta to see more details.

We expect CIS as a major supporter of this event along with WMF and WIMIN. As per the detailed estimates given in Expenses page, we request you to allot Rs.1,50,440 and 300 T-Shirts for Wikisangamotsavam 2013.

On behalf of Malayalam Wikimedia Community, Adv.tksujith, Gen. Convenor, Organising Committee

Escalation of budget estimate[edit]

Due to unavoidable situations, now the Wiki Students Meet will have to host an additional 50 more students. This is because, the committee had to accept and approve a proposal to also invite the accomplished students of 2012 ml Wikisource Digitization projects. We had not distributed any valuable appreciations or rewards to them last year. Now that they are attending the function, obviously we will have to arrange bags for them too!

Therefore, we are afraid that we will have to increase the number of Student Bags by a corresponding sum.

Hence, The mlWS2013 team request you to allocate a further 50 * 300 = 15000 INR under the Student Bags portfolio. Adv.tksujith (talk) 06:28, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Support is being extended to the Malayalam WikiSangamotsavam 2013. CIS-A2K has committed to allocating about Rs. 150,000/- in addition to printing 300 T-Shirts (approximate cost of Rs. 100,000/-) for the event. A detailed and accurate account of the support extended to the Malayalam Wikimedia community will be published post the event and after the bills are settled by the WikiSangamotsavam Organizing Committee --Visdaviva (talk) 07:12, 11 December 2013 (UTC)
