Research project: Open government data for regulation of energy resource industries in India

India is endowed with a huge mineral resource base. However, the mining sector faces many regulatory challenges, with significant lawlessness and weak enforcement of existing laws. It is hypothesised that a lack of available data in the public domain, and poor use of data, has contributed to the status quo. This project has examined the availability, accessibility and use of open data in the extractive energy industries sector in India. It looked at the impact of existing instruments and initiatives relating to coal, petroleum and natural gas, and explored opportunities to enhance the openness of government data for the extractive resource sector.
