Recently added a new IRC channel for Indian Linux User Group, Chennai.
Server : irc.freenode.net
Use any IRC client like pidgin, telepathy, xchat.
There are many clients available for other OS like Windows too.
You can use browser also : webchat.freenode.net
Planning to conduct meetings, take classes, with realtime support in this channel.
We are having a mailing list
To interact with the community, IRC is a better tool compared to the list.
Hoping to get in touch with the ILUGC community much closer with the IRC.
Come and meet us at #ilugc-in
