    It would be just sooooo cool if you would say what page and column
    and line of that document you are referring to.

    On the empty evidence of your one gif I would say it is TA, but
    honestly, decisions should not be made on the basis of patchy stuff
    like this. Indian government document or not, there is no evidence
    there to base decisions on.
