Transforming India's Budgets into Open Linked Data

Transforming India's Budgets into Open Linked Data

The Fifth Elephant is a conference on data science, engineering, and Machine Learning. Indian Budget documents across various tiers of government, consisting of detailed information on allocations made and resources raised in a financial year. Unfortunately, these documents are published in unstructured PDFs which makes it difficult for researchers, economists and the general public to analyze and use this crucial data. This session will delve into our journey of developing OpenBudgetsIndia - a collective initiative to make India’s budgets open, usable and easy to comprehend.
