There are no any identifiers to connect Indian writers and scholar's PhD thesis. ID will help English Wikipedia as well as Indic languages Wikipedia articles to connect Shodhganga thesis IDs. If Shodhganga agrees and releases their database in PD, we may receive additional information like PhD thesis year and university name etc to populate on Wikidata.
