  ttf-indic-fonts packages are outdated

Status in ttf-indic-fonts package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The Debian fonts team recently restructured the indic fonts. ttf-indic-fonts changed to fonts-indic. This is meta package and all packages ttf-[language]-fonts renamed to fonts-[script/foundry]. In addition to this all fonts were updated to latest versions from upstreams. 
  I request ubuntu maintainers to update the fonts to latest versions and consider following the debian package naming changes for fonts.

  Refer: http://packages.debian.org/sid/fonts-indic
