(Lack of reliable data in the public domain has hampered the search for policy alternatives in India)
In India, a step towards making non-sensitive government data accessible online was taken in 2012 with the adoption of the National Data Sharing and Accessibility Policy (NDSAP)
It is a joint initiative between India and the US and the portal will be available on the official sites of the Indian– http://india.gov.in
It is a platform developed to provide single point access to datasets, documents, services, tools and applications published by various ministries/gov
government departments for supporting the Open Data initiative of the National Data Sharing & Accessibility Policy (NSDAP). It is a product that is available in open source for global implementation i.e. on Open Government Platform (OGPL) and the entire product is available for download at the Open Source Code Sharing Platform GitHub. How would Data Portal India be useful? The portal will enhance transparency in government functioning and also open up avenues for additional usage of government data.
