Hyderabad: The Telangana IT department is all set to add 100 more datasets to its open data platform in a fortnight. 

As part of the open data policy, information from various government departments has been made available online. 


The dataset related to the transport department, including that of TSRTC. Hyderabad Metro, will also be made available in the next three months.

Officials of the Digital Media wing of the Telangana IT department have been working with the transport department over the past 6 months to create dataset in global data format. 

Using these datasets start-ups, citizens and other stakeholder can address public issues by finding solutions using the data available online.

Mr Rakesh Dubuddu, founder of Factly, and consultant for the Open data platform, said, “We have about 200 datasets in various stages of data processing and our focus is to get as much as high value data possible to all stakeholders in the public domain. All public transport data will be made available in a globally acceptable format. Transport being a very large dataset and complexities involved in it, all the work will be in the public domain within the next 3-4 months.”


Datasets are anonymised with no personally identifiable information and adhere to the RTI and existing privacy judgments and implications.

It may be mentioned here that the open data platform unveiled in 2016 has 125 datasets from across 15 departments on the data.telangana.gov.in. In October, datasets related to Urban Local bodies, including profile, streetlighting, sanitation, infrastructure, roads and drainage, educational institutions, urban poverty alleviation, water supply, regulation of plastic and flex have been uploaded. 

“We have uploaded data from agriculture geo locations for primary market yards with a facility to preview the data and view in the map format,” said Mr Dubbudu.


Mr.Dubbudu said, “Open data is a global phenomenon and is regarded as the second revolution for transparency. India as such is in the initial stages of understanding data culture. We are guiding the departments to put up data in the public domain.”
