He added, “In the next few months we will provide the .Bharat domain in remaining Indian languages also.”

Govind was speaking at the recently concluded 10th World Hindi Sammelan here which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

During the Sammelan nearly 1,000 people were provided with the .Bharat domain, he said adding that they were also informed about how to set up a website in Devnagiri Hindi.

Besides, they were also told about how any website can be opened in UNICODE and PUNICODE. Indians settling abroad too can open their website with this URL, Govind said.
