The project has managed to release more than 200 important Tamil texts so far without any funding from any agency, government or private. Project Madurai is a collection of ancient Tamil texts, out of print books, and contemporary authors. Government of Tamil Nadu brought the works of around 25 20th Century authors into the public domain including Bharathiyar, Bharathidasan, Kalki, Pattukottai Kalyanasundaram and others. And there were writers like Jeyakanthan and Vairamuthu who voluntarily gave permission to the project to convert some of their works into e-texts. Today, the project covers even the works of expatriate Tamil authors from places like Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and other countries.
