Call for Comments on Draft Report on Open Government Data in India (v2)

Posted by Pranesh Prakash at Aug 19, 2011 05:50 PM | Permalink

CIS has come out with the first draft of the second version of the
open government data report. We welcome all comments and criticisms.

Nisha Thompson has worked on updating the report that we at CIS had
prepared last year. This updated version of the report on open
government data in India includes additional case studies as well as a
potential policy (National Data Sharing and Accessibility Policy) that
would create a central government data portal.

There are additional government case studies regarding e-governance
and how they are changing the way data is collected and distributed.
The report also looks at the issues around open data at the city and
panchayat level and profiles new projects that are working to fill
that void. It also includes a deeper account account of the global
perspective on open government data and how India's experience with
open data will be different from what the west is doing.

Please do let us know what you think are deficiencies in the report,
corrections that should be made, or even just general comments. Drop
in a word even if you just find it useful.

Please do write in to pranesh[at]cis-india.org by Friday, September 2, 2011.

Download the draft report.
