CIS-A2K (Centre for Internet and Society - Access to Knowledge) is a campaign to promote the fundamental principles of justice, freedom, and economic development. It deals with issues like copyrights, patents and trademarks, which are an important part of the digital landscape.
If you have a general proposal/suggestion for Access to Knowledge team you can write on the discussion page. If you have appreciations or feedback on our work, please share it on feedback page.


A large number of content or policy pages were directly imported/copied from the English Wikipedia.

  1. Most of them are not translated/transcribed into the regional languages,
  2. In Odia Wikipedia the policy titles are mostly in English e.g. or:ଉଇକିପିଡ଼ିଆ:Copyrights
  3. There are lots of incomplete imports (for example "Proposed deletion" template exists, but not the policy page)
  4. As a result, decisions are often taken based on common sense or (directly or indirectly) referring/following English Wikipedia policies

We will prepare separate report on each of these Wikipedias projects.
