The Open Government Platform (OGD) Platform has been built in compliance with Open Data Policy (NDSAP) to facilitate Departments to publish their datasets, enabling cross sectoral use of data and derive maximum benefit of government data. It also sets a benchmark in enabling India to become one of the leading countries with regard to Open Data Initiative across the world.Keeping up with our continuous efforts to take the Open Data Government (OGD) Platform India to greater heights, National Informatics Centre (NIC) had organized a half a day workshop for Chief Data Officers (CDOs) on 11th April, 2019 at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. The workshop focused on the following topics: • Open Government Data (OGD) Platform India Overview • Roles and Responsibilities of CDOs • Demo of data publishing workflow & CDO Dashboard • Releasing of Datasets through Web-Services/APIs
Recommendations and Way Forward: • Chief Data Officers to proactively release positive datasets through Web Services/APIs. • NIC Open Data coordinators to coordinate with CDOs in their Ministry/Departments for release and publishing of data from Citizen Centric Services and other major eGov applications on OGD Platform through APIs. Necessary permissions could be taken on file for such release of datasets from IT Systems. • CDOs to prepare positive and negative list of datasets available with Ministry/Departments to have a target for publishing of datasets through APIs • CDOs along with local NIC unit can take guidance and technical support of OGD PMU for creation of APIs. • Facilitating Ministry/Departments to showcase and link respective Open Government Datasets available on OGD Platform to their websites. • Focussed promotion sessions should be conducted for creating more awareness in the Ministry/Department, Educational Institutions etc.
