Oh sorry - none meant! Apologies if it sounded otherwise.

28. Term of copyright in Government work.- In the case of Government
work, where Government is the first owner of the copyright therein,
copyright shall subsist until [Sixty] years from the beginning of the
calendar year next following the year in which the work is first

Where Government work is defined as:

(k) "Government work" means a work which is made or published by or
under the direction or control
(i) the Government or any department of the Government;
(ii) any Legislature in India;
(iii) any court, tribunal or other judicial authority in India;

My reading is that the Census Authority is very much a part of
government. A question that I have been thinking about is whether
census data (in the raw form and not the presentation) is capable of
being copyrighted.

Thank you.
