Various Departments of Govt. of Maharashtra are uding Linux.

Judiciary system is on Linux. MSRTC, FDA are also on Linux.
BSNL complaint call (trouble ticketing) handling is on Linux.
Many corporates are already switching to FOSS (starting with OpenOffice.)

IIRC, ICICI, UTI banks, Bajaj Aliance and many others are already on FOSS or
shifting to FOSS.

Well, Things are changing towards the FOSS usage.
It is a slow process but will happen sooner or later.
