    An Open Data Policy is being pushed by Indian PM Dr. Manmohan Singh, by which all non -strategic governmental data will be made public.

    One of the many reasons why I think this guy is great:)

    This gives me hope that we are finally growing up as a progressive democracy, more than any stock market boom

    You mean more business to those who host the DFI servers?:D

    But seriously, I would really think stuff like this would make the babus more accountable. At this point, RTI is a fearful word with them. Enquiry matters stamped RTI are given special importance, but cost the public a tonne.

    It would be useful to know who is in charge of implementing xyz programs, especially for cost and time overruns. And then we go heckle the minister:twizt:
