Identification of Knowledge Texts

To identify and shortlist knowledge texts to be taken up for translation by NTM at present, the list of most prescribed texts is generated from Indian Universities Database. This list is scrutinized by experts. Teachers, students and other experts of concerned disciplines from various language backgrounds are contacted to get an opinion on the demand for these books in Indian languages. The list is further examined and the books that would benefit large number of students and the academia are listed. Finally Subcommittee on Knowledge Texts and NTM-Project Advisory Committee approve the titles.

To begin with, NTM has collected lists of books recommended by experts in twenty one disciplines for translation and is working towards bringing out 105 translated texts in these disciplines.
