The purpose of this dataset is to act as a benchmark for Telugu handwritting related tasks like character recognition. There are 11 sheet layouts that produce 937 unique Telugu characters. Eighty three writers participated in generating the dataset and contributed 913 sheets in all. Each sheet layout contains 90 characters except the last which contains 83 characters where the last 10 are english numerals 0-9.
