Centre for Budget and Governance Accountability is a policy research and advocacy organization that analyzes public policies and government finances in India and advocates for greater transparency, accountability, and public participation in budget processes.

CBGA aims to develop an accessible and comprehensive open data portal for India's budget information. The work comprises five major aspects: 1) collation of existing data including PDFs and spreadsheets and the creation of a search taxonomy for these documents; 2) conversion of data into machine-readable formats; 3) production of fact sheets to aid non-specialist understanding; 4) creation of a user-friendly portal where data will be published with tools to access and visualize the data; and 5) consultations and consensus building with stakeholders to evangelize data standardization, and increased publication and accessibility.
