quoting from the article: A muzzled RBI refuses to give data about exactly how much cash was being dispensed across which regions of India, and when. This, despite requests from Bengal finance minister Amit Mitra, activists, NGOs and economists.
Notebandi 2.0 (link ) (it's an intro for an upcoming book but the article has a lot of data mentioned on major public expenditures and losses)
We collectively represent several civil society organisations, businesses and researchers in Pune who actively engage with public data, build products to enhance access to information and conduct outreach to citizens through our work. Data that is more accessible and usable would immensely catalyse our efforts to make Pune a more liveable and inclusive city.
This letter is to humbly request the PMC to kindly organise a public discussion & feedback process on Pune's open data portal, so that the various users of open data, whether civil society, business, researchers or open data experts can share constructive comments on the portal and how it succeeds in implementation of the National Data Sharing Accessibility Policy. Since the data needs of different sectors (transport, health, education etc) are likely to differ we think bringing in diverse views on this portal will make it a resounding success.
I think limiting people for the type of job they're looking for might be a little excess moderation on our behalf. Especially since there are many regular IT people who are still doing good stuff with social sector data. I think the 'not too frequently' rule should suffice so that the channel does not get clogged with CVs
Haha, Nikhil, I think informal chat is clear to most people. Since we are putting this as a template out to other city groups I don't think it needs to be this long. Can we remove this section? I also agree that we can have a Pune specific channel for informal chat.
