  • In the intro mention that open data improves the public oversight of the government and reduces corruption.
  • In the body, mention that the policy seeks to harness the public sector data by governing  “all data and information created/generated/collected/archived by the Government of India” as much as, “State Governments [who] will also be free to adopt the provisions of the policy”. In concerns mention dilution of purpose due to commercial use, absence of values and objectives about open data and lack of constitutional framework.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need to address these issues.
