Marathi has been a focus language area for the last year. Our work primarily dealt with Marathi Wikipedia and Marathi Wikisource. This work-plan is a depiction of community consultation and feedback from our institutional partners. We tried to give a critical overview of CIS-A2K's work since July 2015 and this work-plan presents the plan of activities for the year between July 2016 to June 2017.
