What data is expected?

Data about the bills discussed within national parliament as well as votings on bills (not to mix with passed national law). Data on bills must be available for the current legislation period. Open data on the law-making process is crucial for parliamentary transparency: What does a bill text say and how does it change over time? Who introduces a bill? Who votes for and against it? Where is a bill discussed next, so the public can participate in debates? This data category draws on work by the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the Declaration of Parliamentary Openness.

  • Content of bill
  • Author of bill
  • Votes on bill per member of parliament
  • Transcripts of debates on bill

Originally submitted by Nisha Thompson, which points to the OGD Platform for India: https://data.gov.in/catalogs/ministry_department/lok-sabha-secretariat. Bill voting and transcript information may be available here, however I was unable to locate this data specifically.

India's draft legislation is available at the following link: http://164.100.47.194/Loksabha/Legislation/billintroduce.aspx. The title and status are available in HTML, while the content and author are available to view and download in PDF. I accessed the information by completing a web search with keywords, consulted the links on the Guide to Law online for India where I was directed to the Parliament of India, House of the People, click on Bills Introduced under Legislation.
