Hello,

Belated Translation Day Greetings.

As you are aware, through National data sharing and accessibility
policy(NDSAP) now we are able to source the images/videos from GOI websites
to Wikimedia Commons.
NDSAP is not implemented in many states
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template_talk:GODL-India#States_implemented_NDSAP_or_similar_policies>
.

If NDSAP is implemented in a state, we can reuse images from state
govt websites in Wikimedia Commons. It will also help in maps in
wikipedia (district
map <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_districts_in_India#/maplink/0>,
national
park map <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_national_parks_of_India#Map>
,highway
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Highway_(India)#Current_system> map
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Highway_(India)#Current_system>)
because OSM can use gis data
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/India/Data_sources#India_OpenData:_data.gov.in>
from open data govt portals.

Kerala state is yet to implement NDSAP.
For that, we wikimedians User:Ranjithsiji
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Ranjithsiji> , User:Mujeebcpy
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Mujeebcpy> and myself had created open
data video (derived from open data NZ)

Video:-


We were able to circulate the message among the govt officials and talk to
them about the importance of open data.(User:Manojk
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Manojk>, User:Jkadavoor
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Jkadavoor>)
Kerala state has started the process to implement NDSAP policy.

I request each language community to translate this video. (video
transcript is available here
