Last week, President Obama’s unprecedented efforts to advance open and transparent Government reached an important milestone. As part of a joint effort by the United States and India to build an open government platform, the U.S. team has deposited open source code– an important benchmark in developing the Open Government Platform that will enable governments around the world to stand up their own open government data sites.

The plan specifically called for an effort under the U.S.-India Strategic Dialogue to produce “Data.gov-in-a-Box” -- an open source version of the United States’ Data.gov data portal and India’s India.gov.in document portal. The U.S. and India are working together to produce an open source version available for implementation by countries globally, encouraging governments around the word to stand up open data sites that promote transparency, improve citizen engagement, and engage application developers in continuously improving these efforts. Technical teams from the U.S. and Indian governments have been working together since August of this year, with a planned launch of the open source product (which is now called the Open Government Platform (OGPL) to reflect its broad scope) in early 2012.



Data.gov Goes Global | The White House

I find it hard to believe that India worked with American government on this...

Indian government connected to a platform that promotes transparency?

Kapil Sibal should check this out. This is blasphemy and should be blocked immediately.

Data.gov should be destroyed and removed from the Internet permanently.

with the US? well, the US government conceals a lot of information, spies on its own citizens.. if wikileaks and other revelations tell so... no wonder India partners with such a goon.

It would be better for present Indian Government to improve their Image among Indian Citizen before participating in such programs.
