Draft Recommended policy on Open Standards for e-Governance include RAND

Here I am attaching the latest draft on Indian Open Standard Policy.
Here is a quick review and the *Loopholes in Policy*

1) This policy is a backdoor for M$ and other vendor to push RAND
based standards (see Para 4.1.2)
2) 4.3 is paragraph which accept alternate standard for temporal.
There are many field where we do not have any clear open standard.
Govt must develop standards in that case. section 4.4 must remove
"Specifications as per published proprietary extensions or sub­sets"
condition from it
3) section 5 , allow multiple standard.

I request to have a look at policy and please upload your comment at
