Nyaaya

New Delhi, India
Joined November 2016
Presence in: India
Focus: Access to Information, Generalist Legal Services, Governance

Today, information on laws is difficult to access. The language is complex, and economic and language barriers pose special challenges. There is no single resource aimed at the citizen, that publishes every law and explains what they mean in an accessible user-friendly format.

Nyaaya’s mission is to demystify India’s laws.

To fulfill this mission, we are building:
– India’s first free online repository of every central and state law.
– Explained in simple English.
– With interactive guides and visualisations, to get people to the right legal answer.
