Drdheep, if their breeding in captivity would have been so easier then surely I would have been able to provide you a document of how to do it
One of my friend in Germany is able to keep the fry alive for more than 2-3 months, may be in near time he can come up with his formula.
Until that, I would suggest what Deepak has said - 1st try to keep them alive and happy - breeding will happen.
I have asked members in Kolkata side also not much of an information I have got except that they stay at a conductivity region of 180.
'And Navneethk' can you share your experience of keeping the C.Hodgarti shrimplets alive in brackish water for more than a month in a little detailed manner please -
such as water salinity, feeding regime, light etc. whatever details you can provide.
I will ask some of my friends who are trying hard to breed them in captivity to try your method out and also mention about your findings in their blog(s).
Will it be fine for you

I bought two carrying ones from an lfs. One I left in a breeding box placed in my shrimp tank. The box got lighting from a 220v light. I did daily 10% water change. I fed them powdered algae wafers at first to experiment but the larvae didn't touch it. I put green water from my friend's pond and infusoria.
My lfs guy gave me some local aquarium salt. I only put a pinch of it to the second batch. Both the batches had no filteration only aeration.
During the second week many started to die. And then I shifted them to a nano tank where after few more days they all died.
