A new Government of India portal is expected to be go live next month. This portal will give citizens all the information possible from climate changes to land records. Prepared for launch in July, this project is based on a project by Mr. Vivek Kundra, Chief Information Officer of Data.gov.us which deals in information of science and latest technology. Data.gov.in will make information accessible to Indian public on government schemes and plans. This national portal will enable citizens to access government related data.
Mj. Gen. (Dr) Siva Kumar who is head of Govt. of India Natural Resources Data Management System said certain formalities are yet to be ironed out. Specifically, National Data Sharing and Accessibility Policy are yet to be finalized by Govt. of India, before the portal is readied for launched.
All non-sensitive data generated by the various government departments, ministries and offices which should be accessible to the general public will be put up on this portal after which citizens can collect hard copies.
