As per original plan the Publication Division is to produce scientific literature in Indian languages for schools, colleges and universities. There has to be a sub-unit within the Publication Division for each Indian language. At present the Division functions on Ad Hoc basis and the decision of producing publication of books/monographs/journals in Indian languages has remained a dream. What, however, has been accomplished is that over 50 books, 40 volumes of Social Science abstracts and 40 volumes of Bharatiya Samajik Chintan have been published by the Division. Besides, numerous small publications have been brought out by it. Several Volumes are under editing.
