I had made a RTI query to your office on 28th August 2018 about the funds granted through your office for any activity leading to the publication of books in Telugu from the period from 2014.Your office redirected the query to the Telugu University which replied on 4.10.2018 explaining the process of reprinting the Telugu translation of Dr. Ambedkar’s works, but in effect, admitting that these have not been reprinted yet.

I revert to my original query to your office – what funds have been allocated from and through your office towards activity leading the publication of books in Telugu from 2014 till date.

Kindly Answer the Following Query under the provision of RTI Act - 2005

The Collected Works of Dr. Ambedkar published by the Potti Sriramulu University is out of print. The Telangana government does not release money to the PS Telugu University to reprint it. This is the sum of Rs. 80 lakh for 2,000 copies of each volume. Provide the reason for not releasing the amount.
