Entry for spending / in



This is a discussion about the submission for spending / in.

We would request to revise Openly licenced parameter from “It’s not openly licenced” to “It’s openly licenced” as all the data published on Open Government Data Platform India are Open and comes under the Government Open Data License (GODL), which can be accessed at https://data.gov.in/sites/default/files/Gazette_Notification_OGDL.pdf. All the data are totally free to use, reuse and redistribute for all lawful commercial and non-commercial purposes.
We would also request you to revise Downloadable at once parameter from “It’s not downloadable at once” to “It’s downloadable at once” as all the data available on OGD Platform India are easily downloadable and available in bulk.
We would also request you to revise Up-to-date parameter from “It’s not up-to-date” to “It’s up-to-date” as all the data are being regularly updated on Ministry/Department’s website and OGD Platform India.
Data in Open Format are available on below mentioned URLS:

Hi @Akhilesh_Srivastava,

We went through the resources you shared with us and we’ll change the License to yes, since the license you shared with us complies with the Open Definition. As for the rest of the requests, we won’t change , the expenditure you sent to us is a report per year but number 1 you have to go through the data month by month, the second makes you download each piece of the expenditure separately, the third gives a 404 error (see attachment) and the 4 only gets to 2011, so it’s not timely. We won’t change the submission for this dataset in those regards.
