Recently I saw a demo by a IISc professor in Bangalore which suggests

Subject: [AI] Status on OCR for Indian languages

Dear friends,



Can you please give me your valuable inputs about availability of Indian
language OCR.  What is the status on it?



We heard from so many sources that it is developed for this and that
language, etc. But what is the reality?



I tried googling. I was not able to get relevant information but came
across
a link as http://www.isim.ac.in/RCILCM/index.htm

I heard c-dac pune / c-dac banglore or I I t have developed Indian
language
