    Mridul Kumar Sharmah, one of the members of the team, said, "The website www.jahnabi.org has received more than 60,000 hits and the free-of-cost software downloaded by more than 1,000 people since it was launched online on November 25 last."

    Another member Utpal Phukon also noted, "The programming of the processor is based on dotnet platform and C# language containing around 15,000 lines of code."

    The new word processor software meant for Assamese writers could probably be a motivation to many other native language word processor softwares, which the Indians do need.
