   As a user of bangtex, I may say, Yes, the judgement is right!

  Type 1 fonts are  also available from the bangtex home page, though I
  guess it is maintained separately.
  For example, Gitobitan (Lyrics of songs by Rabindranath Tagore)
  available online at
  uses  type 1 fonts.
  I may add that the whole collection (>2000 songs) is searchable (search
  is based on  pruned latex files).
  I wonder if there is any other  searchable site  on  books in
   Indian languages.

   Bangex is released under GPL.

Thanks for the comments/suggestions.  I am forwarding it to the bangtex
