I have rewritten the page. Kindly review it and tell if any problem persists. VIVEK RAI :  Friend?  06:13, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

It's much better, though the first couple sections still have quite close paraphrasing; try to avoid that sort of thing. I'm also not convinced that the organizational chart is tagged with the proper licence; where's your evidence for CC0? I don't know if it would qualify under fair use as it would be easy for you to produce your own non-infringing version. —Psychonaut (talk) 06:39, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
There are some facts and incidents which cannot be avoided. As for example, I cannot change the Disaster Management Act 2005 to Some act Passed in 2005. However, If you are not convinced, kindly try to give some edit on your own. May be your English might work better than mine because I sometimes get too emotional with it. As for the image, I think I should list it as copyrighted image with permission that it is too simple (simple text etc). That should work?VIVEK RAI :  Friend?  08:11, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
I think the re-written version is good enough to avoid copyvio so I've made that version live. Personally I couldn't see the close paraphrasing concern but maybe I was looking at the wrong source or something. Post here with more info if you want me to take another look.

Obtained the permission to use the content.[edit]

I have obtained the permission from the Executive Director of NIDM as the proprietor of the content hosted on his website to use it on Wikipedia. I'm forwarding that copy to permissions-en@wikimedia.org VIVEK RAI :  Friend?  05:17, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

I'm afraid permission to use the images on Wikipedia still won't be good enough to upload the images to Commons, which requires unrestricted licensing. See Commons:Commons:Licensing#Acceptable licenses and in particular the list headed "The following restrictions must not apply to the image or other media file". —Psychonaut (talk) 07:28, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
I know that. I wasn't talking about the Image rather the text. By the way, What about the re written page. Kindly change anything there to make it suitable and re host the article. VIVEK RAI :  Friend?  12:58, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
It is not sufficient for the copyright holder to grant permission to use the text on Wikipedia. He or she must irrevocably release the text under the terms of the CC-BY-SA 3.0 or GFDL licenses, or under one compatible with either, or into the public domain. This is because Wikipedia is not the only entity which publishes our text; anyone is free to take it and reproduce it. —Psychonaut (talk) 13:40, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! I have emailed the director with a template to release the text under the aforesaid licenses. Let's see what he has to say. By the time, you may wish to give me some review on the re written page. VIVEK RAI :  Friend?  15:13, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
