Why FOSS is important for Indian Govt and Education System

I heard some news about India to develop new Operating System. Linux based Operating System are already available in Free and Open Source license. Cost to redevelop Fedora 9 is 50,000 Crore INR. We can use Fedora Or Ubuntu free of cost.
Govt may decide to use FOSS or waste Indian Rupees to redevelop a new OS
.

FOSS gives ownership of software. Ownership is most important criteria while creating/customizing new Operating System as it will give freedom to modify a ICT tool according to pedagogy rather then just blindly following ICT tools and modifying pedagogical values according to a ICT tool
