A non-American governmental edict may still be copyrighted outside the U.S. Similar to {{PD-in-USGov}}, the above U.S. Copyright Office Practice does not prevent U.S. states or localities from holding copyright abroad, depending on foreign copyright laws and regulations.
 

This work is in the public domain in India because it originates from India and its term of copyright has expired. According to The Indian Copyright Act, 1957, all documents enter the public domain after sixty years counted from the beginning of the following calendar year (ie. as of 2019, prior to 1 January 1959) after the death of the author.


This work is also in the public domain in the U.S.A. because it was in the public domain in India in 1996, and no copyright was registered in the U.S.A. (This is the combined effect of India's joining the Berne Convention in 1928, and of 17 USC 104A with its critical date of January 1, 1996.)
