Dear Sridhar,

An excellent mandate proposal, especially your proposed modification:

The authors of the scholarly literature produced from the research 
funded by the ICAR at either ICAR establishments or elsewhere in 
the NARS are required to deposit final version of the author's 
peer-reviewed manuscript at the time of acceptance and no later 
than the time of publication in the ICAR institute’s Open Access 
Institutional Repositories or in any other appropriate Open Access 
repositories of NARS.

I've registered it for you as a proposed multi-institutional mandate in ROARMAP:

Bravo. Let us hope the modified proposal is adopted soon!

Best wishes,

Stevan Harnad
