"It is good attempt to search, establish, compile and publish such a valueable set of encyclopedia. But the price seems high enough beyond the pocket of individual if he intends to own one. "

"The Board offered a 50% discount during the recent international book fair in Lahore, bringing it down to Rs 2500. Still it is expensive for many readers. The Board should bring out a digital edition on a DVD, which they may easily sell for a hundred or two. Yet they can put in many more graphics and videos without increasing the cost. And they can publish an updated version every year. As for computers, most middle class homes have them by now.."
