Please inform me if you know of any India related newsgroup or FAQ not listed here.
Note: (M) signifies a moderated newsgroup which means articles posted to the group must be approved by the moderator(s) and thus usually take longer to appear. To post to these groups, you may also send mail to the moderator's address.
If you get a "Invalid group name (not in active)" error for a group (eg. clari.* or alt.*), it means the NNTP server your browser looks up for usenet news does not carry that particular group.
