PMC Endorsing the National Data Sharing and Accessibility Policy (NDSAP)

NDSAP Overview: The National Data Sharing and Accessibility Policy (NDSAP) is designed so as to apply to all sharable non-sensitive data available either in digital or analog forms but generated using public funds by various Ministries/Departments /Subordinate offices/Organizations/ Agencies of Government of India as well as States. The NDSAP policy is designed to promote data sharing and enable access to Government of India owned data for national planning, development and awareness.

NDSAP aims to provide an enabling provision and platform for proactive and open access to the data generated by various Government of India entities. The objective of this policy is to facilitate access to Government of India owned shareable data (along with its usage information) in machine readable form through a wide area network all over the country in a periodically updatable manner, within the framework of various related policies, acts and rules of Government of India, thereby permitting a wider accessibility and usage by public.

Different types of data sets generated both in geospatial and non-spatial form by different ministries/departments are supposed to be classified as shareable data and non-shareable data. Data management encompasses the systems and processes that ensure data integrity, data storage and security, including metadata, data security and access registers. The principles on which data sharing and accessibility need to be based include: Openness, Flexibility, Transparency, Quality, Security and Machine-readable.

NDSAP once implemented would lead to:

  • Opening up of the information out of the Government System
  • Making available of the Accurate, Reliable and Unbiased informational
  • Providing single data OGD Platform for the country for data sharing
  • Establishment of a platform to promote innovation in government applications
  • Enhancing government Transparency, Accountability and Public Engagement
  • Effective utilization of Government data by providing meaningful visual representations
  • Enabling development of Innovative Applications around datasets or mash-up from multiple datasets hence giving different perspectives to government data.
