Johnson, Sanjay, Sathyakam, Sajjad and Arun have already promised to

big impact projects in open educational resources for school students and
online courses for enhancing skills for undergraduate students. gnowledge
lab is involved in both these projects. In the latter project we are
already using open street map. Hundreds of students are being exposed to
osm as a part of the course. In the coming three years, we are going to
work with 50,000 undergraduate students across the country. Considering
these are Govt of India supported projects we need to take care of the
borders as per Indian Govt. Therefore the need to create custom maps.
