In the second phase, half translated scripts, scripts translated from Sanskrit to Grandhikam and allotted to scholars for completion into normal language will be taken up. In the third phase, simultaneously, Vedas, Vedangas, Puranas and Itihasas will be listed and allotted to renowned scholars for translation of the ancient scripts into Telugu.
