dc.description.abstract In this paper, we talk about a decentralised information retrieval system which would be suitable for the developing countries that face the problem of limited bandwidth. In this paper we came up with an implementation that uses the existing technology in a novel manner to meet the specific needs of users in such countries. We considered the infrastructural limitations of a developing country like Bangladesh and thus the solution presented here performs just as well in similar situations anywhere else in the world. Our work has been tested for the Bangla language and the same procedure can be applied easily for any other language in any part of the world where there is need for such a system. We had to pick and choose from a set of software packages for one that would best serve our needs. We also had to take into consideration user convenience, for which we had to keep in mind the diverse demographics of people that might have need of such a system. Finally, we came up with the system with all the desired features. en_US
