We present IndoNet, a multilingual lexi- cal knowledge base for Indian languages. It is a linked structure of wordnets of 18 different Indian languages, Universal Word dictionary and the Suggested Up- per Merged Ontology (SUMO). We dis- cuss various benefits of the network and challenges involved in the development. The system is encoded in Lexical Markup Framework (LMF) and we propose mod- ifications in LMF to accommodate Uni- versal Word Dictionary and SUMO. This standardized version of lexical knowledge base of Indian Languages can now easily be linked to similar global resources.
