HRD Ministry launches portal, BHARATAVANI

The Ministry of Human Resource Development on Wednesday announced the launch of a multilingual knowledge portal www.bharatavani.in, an official statement said.

In this context, the Bharatavani Project (BvP), a knowledge initiative is launched by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India. This Project aims to build a searchable knowledge repository in and about all the languages in India in multimedia (text, audio, video, images) formats through an online portal. The Bharatavani Portal will be accessible to all sections of society. The Project is being implemented by the Central Institute of Indian Languages, Mysuru, Karnataka. The Portal offers open knowledge under fair usage clauses of The Copyright (Amendment) Act, 2012, for educational purposes.

Providing available knowledge already created by the Government and publicly funded institutions all over India, and putting it across for the public usage, by deploying robust, interactive, user friendly web tools will be the main thrust of the Bharatavani Project. The Project will be guided by a National Advisory Committee and a Technology Advisory Committee, besides Language Editorial Committees in each of the languages. The MHRD seeks active participation of the knowledge organisations, individuals in this ambitious project resulting in a massive social movement of knowledge sharing.

The Bharatavani Portal would publish the content in the following main sections:

1. PaaThyapustaka Kosha: Textbooks
2. Jnana Kosha : Knowledge base (Digitisation underway)
3. Shabda Kosha: Dictionaries
4. Bhasha Kosha : Language learning
5. Suchanaa Praudyogikii Kosha : IT tools (Linked to TDIL)
6. Bahumaadhyama Kosha: Multimedia

Along with the portal, the Ministry has also launched the Bharatavani Multi-lingual app. This will enable users to search for one language text in another language as well as get meanings in different languages. Currently, the app has 35 multilingual dictionaries.
