This is a sub-CA of the India CCA root certificate. CCA submitted a request for inclusion of the root certificate in bug #557167. Upon reviewing the request I found that the hierarchy is very large:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=557167#c15

The approach that we are going to take with this CA hierarchy is as follows.

1) There will be a separate bug for each of the 7 intermediate CAs to be
separately evaluated for inclusion as a trust anchor in NSS. 

2) After all 7 of the intermediate CAs have been approved/included, then
I will proceed with the process of evaluating the CCA root certificate for
inclusion in NSS.

3) If the CCA root certificate is approved for inclusion in NSS, then the 7
intermediate CAs will be removed from NSS at the same time that the CCA root is
included.
If TCS wants to apply for root inclusion, then a representative of the CA will need to file a new bug as described here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/CA:How_to_apply#Creation_and_submission_of_the_root_CA_certificate_inclusion_request
