FOSS Initiative Cell, Department of Information Technology, welcomes you to the world of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). FOSS is stipulated by a liberal licensing policy that makes it possible to be obtained free of charge along with the source code, which can then be modified by the user as per requirements. Advantages like increasing interoperability, developing local capacity/ industry, reducing costs, achieving vendor independence, enabling localization, reducing piracy/copyright infringements and increasing growth of knowledge-based society are among the compelling reasons for adopting FOSS. The power and reach of free and open source software can be judged from the fact that most of the internet functions today are mostly grounded on it including the all pervasive e-mails and Web Servers. In many cases it has been observed that FOSS is functionally and qualitatively equivalent to or even superior than the proprietary products.

Share It With Others! is Janaagraha’s unique initiative to tackle corruption by harnessing the collective energy of citizens. You can report on the nature, number, pattern, types, location, frequency and values of actual corrupt acts on this website. Your reports will, perhaps for the first time, provide a snapshot of bribes occurring across your city. We will use them to argue for improving governance systems and procedures, tightening law enforcement and regulation and thereby reduce the scope for corruption in obtaining services from the government.

We invite you to register any recent or old bribes you have paid. Please tell us if you resisted a demand for a bribe, or did not have to pay a bribe, because of a new procedure or an honest official who helped you. We do not ask for your name or phone details, so feel free to report on the formats provided.

The core objective of the Manthan Award process is: making visible the contents that already exist and thus demonstrating the richness and diversity of content creativity to those interested in understanding and planning an Information Society.

The Manthan Award wants to demonstrate to every stakeholder the existing range of creativity and excellence in the use of the IT tools and communication networks. It seeks to substantiate the conviction that access to networks and ICT platforms is beneficial to the high quality and value of e-contents which are produced and available. It attempts to consider that quality contents, their production and economic sustainability are fundamental requirements which require changes to the way markets operate and governments act.
