To: Mohit Singh

Dear Professor
I am writing to you in the context of a survey we are conducting on
the extend of usage of FOSS (Free/Open Source Software)  in the
Computer Science and IT Departments  in the  Higher Education
Institutions in India. We are requesting the Heads of Departments of
CS/IT/MCA of selected colleges to participate in this survey by
filling in a questionnaire that is available at: This survey is being
carried out as a part of the NRCFOSS (National Resource Centre for
FOSS) Project being funded by the Dept. of Inf. Tech., Govt. of India,
and coordinated by C-DAC Chennai. The queries in this survey are
grouped into four heads under which we seek information pertaining to
the use of FOSS in your department, and it should take you only about
30-40 minutes to complete the process.
While full anonymity will be maintained about the respondents and
their responses, NRCFOSS plans to recognise and reward the top five
departments who score the highest marks in the survey.
I do hope that you will contribute to this study by spending a few
minutes of your valuable time in clicking on the above link and
filling up the questionnaire there in.
Considering the rather short time available, we request you to please
oblige with your response latest by Wednesday the 20th
If you require any clarifications or elaborations on any aspect of
this activity, please feel free revert to us.
Thank you very much for your cooperation and support.
With regards

Prof. C N Krishnan
Coordinator, NRCFOSS/AU
Program Director, AU-KBC Research Centre
