The erstwhile A.P.Government and Silicon Andhra have released a large number of Telugu fonts for free down. These are released under Open Font License a license that is similar in spirit to GPL GNU although the terms may differ slightly.

These fonts vary in shape and appearance - giving a wide choice of fonts to choose depending upon need/choice required. Most of these are hard coded with international numerals and English alphabet. Lohit Telugu Font and Vemana, Pothana fonts do not have this feature. Pothana and Vemana fonts are released under GPL GNU.
