This issue is brought up every year on almost many Indian foss mailing lists. 
Last year someone did something about it:
http://lists.fosscom.in/pipermail/network-fosscom.in/2009-September/001405.html
http://freedom-matters.in/

I don't know yet if the IT-R form is the same this year too, but in any case, 
methinks publishing and popularizing this effort would be a nice thing.


cheers,
