govpedia.in



Hello there! This project is an attempt to make publicly available government data, more accessible!

This website has 2 parts.

1. Wiki - govpedia.in/wiki

govpedia.in/wiki is an attempt to catalog the various government web pages and make them easily accessible to the people. This is a volunteer driven project including some bots! A citizen's interaction with government will be lot more fruitful if we have some understanding of the processes. Unlike a private company's customer service, a government department does not have the resources to be user friendly. Can we provide our public servants some help by making their 'customers' (citizens) a bit more informed? This is an installation of the MediaWiki software.

2. Search - govpedia.in/search - still under construction.

While the wiki is a human curated repository of knowledge, we can also crawl the government web pages and make them available for search. All these pages are already available on web search providers like Google, Bing and Yahoo. Since we crawl pages to extract information, we make them available for search as well. This is an installation of Elasticsearch.

This project also has social media accounts:
