In my knowledge E-Granthalaya software is not an Open Source Software, however it is free.

NIC provide all kinds of support to this software right from Installation. Kindly approach them.

If any individual take the responsibility of installation of the software, then he/she may charge a nominal charge to cover his traveling expenses to your institute and a small remuneration to cover his hospitality and others. However I think Rs. 42,000 is quite a big amount.

Which Open Source license use by E-Granthalaya?

The software is totally free. However, the database i.e. MS SQL is to be installed before u install e-granthalya. And if you purchase MSSQL full version that is paid but if you use demo version of SQL then it will cost you nothing. Demo version can store data upto 2 gb.

E-Granthalya software is quite fee by NIC. You can get this software by sending a letter to the NIC. They will send you E-Granthalya by post. Your letter should be attested by your institution. For installation E-Granthalya, your computer should have internet connection. If you have any problem to install, can call NIC.
