Draft Policy on Linguistic Resources in Open Domain

It is observed that local language contents are very low on the internet. These may be enhanced by collective efforts of all the stakeholders. Government is making available, the Linguistic Resources developed under the TDIL Programme, on Open Government Data (OGD) Platform. Stakeholders may exploit these existing resources developed with Govt. funding for providing language technology solutions.

“In the case of language technologies area the linguistic resources developed under DeitY funded projects shall be made available in open domain through www.data.gov.in(Open Data Platform created under National Data Sharing and Accessibility Policy of DST, being maintained by NIC). The data shall be made available under the Creative Commons License.

With the implementation of the above, users will be able to download the Indian language resources from www.data.gov.in and they will also be able to contribute their data. The existing DeitY R&D Policy is proposed to be amended for making Linguistic Resources available on Open Government Data (OGD) Platform.

We invite your attention and comments on the Policy on Linguistic Resources in Open Domain. Please submit your feedback by 17th December 2015.
