In cities across India, there is a lack of accessible and robust public data. Citizens often do not have access to quantitative information that helps them understand the state of their neighborhood and their city, as well as support their demands of the local government.
OpenCity.in is a repository of city-related public data from government sources, via RTI or open data processes. All data will be in open data format and free to download; the data is licensed under ODbL and Creative Commons Share Alike.
