    (snipping out the statements about copyrights, open licensing,
    copyright, etc).

    You have a point there; the government of India needs to publish that
    design in their gazette. Till then, it is not a formal decision, AFAICT.

    And I suppose that publication in the gazette will be sufficient a "license".

    After all the European Commission does not claima a copyright on the
    euro sign, does it? And the new rupee sign is meant for use, not for
    hoarding or generating royalty income for the GoI.
