The DBT/DST OA Mandate is excellent. It includes all six critical
conditions for a natural, effective, verifiable and successful policy:

1. Author freedom of choice of journal is preserved.
2. Author may choose Green OA self-archiving or Gold OA publishing
3. *Final refereed draft must be deposited in institutional repository
immediately upon acceptance for publication*
4. *Funding is contingent on immediate deposit*
5. Publisher embargo on making the immediate-deposit OA not to exceed 12
6. *Repository should have the copy-request Button so author can provide
individual access during embargo*

The critical conditions are excerpted below:

DBT/DST Open Access Policy

Grantees can make their papers open-access by publishing in an open-access
journalor, if they choose to publish in a subscription journal, by posting
the final acceptedmanuscript to an online repository.
What should be deposited? The final acceptedmanuscript (after refereeing,
revision, etc.)
Where to deposit? The manuscript should be depositedin the grantee’s own
institution’s interoperable institutionalrepository (IR). If the institution
 does not yet have an IR of itsown, then the paper should be deposited in
the centralrepository, which will be created by *DBT/DST.*
When to deposit? Deposits should be made within oneweek of acceptance by the
 journal. However, if the journalinsists on an embargo, the material should
still be deposited,but the repository will keep the deposited papers non-OA
andonly make it fully OA at the end of the embargo period. Suggest that the
period of embargo not be greater than one year.
A*rticles* *under*
*an embargo can still be made availableto individuals by use of the
Request Button available with theIR software. By use of the Request
Button, a reader mayautomatically send a request for a copy to the
author, as iscommonly done by other communication means.*
Who should deposit? The principal investigator (PI) orsomeone authorized by
the PI, or anyone authorized by thehead of the institution where the work is
 carried out (such asthe librarian), can deposit the papers. Both the PI and
 thehead of the institution will be responsible for timely deposit ofthe
Depositing in a repository is mandatory Unless thedeposit ID is quoted in
the project report as well as in futureproposals for funding, the
proposals will
not be considered.
The DBT/DST recommend/s that all authors receiving funds from DBT/DST
should,at the time of returning the copyright transfer form, inform the
publisher that they wouldretain the right to place the full-text of the
final author version in the institution’s IR andDBT/DST Central. This can be
 achieved by attaching to the copyright transfer agreementthe DBT/DST author
