National Data and Analytics Platform to be developed by Niti Aayog

Government think-tank Niti Aayog will develop a National Data and Analytics Platform (NDAP) to make all government data accessible to stakeholders in one place powered by a user friendly search engine, seamless navigation and a worldclass user interface.

Data will be provided in a machine-readable format with customisable analytics and will be sourced from different Central and State Ministries and Departments. Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) will be developed to keep data updated.

To provide direction, oversee progress, guide on data sources, and address various inter-ministerial issues on collating data there will be a high powered steering committee under the chairmanship of Vice Chairman, Niti Aayog, Rajiv Kumar.

There will also be a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) consisting of sector and technology experts to provide guidance on the development of the platform, management of data, and aligning the platform for user-needs.
