Please don't use the ones you currently have. We will soon have the 
fonts with proper copyright matters embedded in the font with credits. 
The font creators, Shri Hussain and Shri Chitranja Kumar are working on 
webpages for the project. They will be releasing it on the web soon. 
This list will be informed. Students of CUSAT should be credited for 
working to make this work GPL and is so is the authors who happily 
agreed when they heard about the GNU project and the GPL. They (students 
of CUSAT) are also working on opentype fonts and further development of 
Rachana fonts together with original authors.
