|Abstract||We present U BV RI CCD photometry for previously unstudied open clusters (Be 64 and Be 69). Photometry has also been carried out for nearby fields to correct for the effects of field stars contamination. From the colour-colour diagram the reddening for Be 64 and Be 69 is estimated to be ∼ 1.05 mag and ∼ 0.65 mag respectively. In case of Be 69 the comparison of obser-vational colour - magnitude diagram (CMD) with the standard isochrones of VandenBerg (1985) indicates anapparent discrepancy between the shape of the turnoff and isochrones. The morphological features of the CMDs of Be 69 are better understood in terms of convective overshooting. The comparison of CMDs of both the clus- ters with the convective overshoot models (Bertelli et al. 1994) produces a good fit for a metallicity Z = 0.008 and age = 0.8 − 1.0 Gyr. An apparent distance modulus(m − M ) = 16.2 and 14.3 has been estimated for Be 64 and Be 69, respectively, which corresponds to a distance of 3880 ± 480 pc and 2860 ± 310 pc, respectively.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
