Wikipedia in Indic Languages: 32.95 million Pageviews in Aug 2011; Online vs Mobile

Wikipedia has 0.1 million Hindi articles as of September 2011, according to Shiju Alex, one of the members of Wikimedia Foundation's India Programs, who used Wikimedia stats to come to this conclusion. Pageviews-wise, Hindi enjoys the highest pageviews with 7.95 million pageviews  (7.7 million non-mobile plus 0.25 million mobile), followed by Marathi which has 4.7 million pageviews (4.6 million non-mobile plus 0.64 million mobile) and Tamil with 4.2 million pageviews (4.1 million non-mobile plus 0.65 million mobile).

Articles Generated: If we look at number of articles being generated in these Indic languages. Hindi leads by 1,00,353 articles (slight increase from 1,00,026 in Aug), Nepali Bhasha comes in second with 69,826 articles, and Telugu takes the third place with 48,803 articles. Other prominent members in the list include Tamil (38,026 articles), Marathi (34,675 articles), and Bishnupriya Manipuri (24,763 articles).
