In India in the year 2012 the Open Governm ent Data Platform India (https://data.gov.in) has been setup as per the National Data Sharing and Accessibility Policy of India. Open Government Data platform provides single point access to open datasets, enhanced visualization platform, responsive web layout, cataloging of similar resources, embedding catalogs, APIs, widgets for sharing filtered set of catalogs and catalogs subscriptions etc. The open data initiatives also support the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) which intends to bring accountability and transparency in public administration which can further help into developing national development plans and sustainable development strategies. The paper provides an insight on role of open data available in India towards achieving Sustainable Development Goals. There is a lack of awareness and validation of open data that limits the effectiveness of uses of open data initiatives for planning, monitoring and research, quality of existing government data and there is long way to go before the output of open data will be actual benefit the life of citizens.Download PDF
