Deficiency of reliable data

CM Chouhan said that in the era of information, data is as important as breathing. Now life cannot be imagined without data. Data has also become a source of knowledge. DBT (Direct Benefit Transfer) is not possible without data. Thus, data is the foundation of good governance. The capacity of data collection and analysis has been continuously enhanced in the state. The work of transferring money directly to the accounts of 1 crore 30 lakh sisters in the state has been possible due to reliable and systematic data.

Earlier, the state lacked the capacity for reliable data collection and analysis, which was its weakness. Concrete efforts were made to increase self-reliance in the field of data through efforts like re-orientation of State Policy Commission and Institute of Good Governance, creation of Statistical Commission, data based Sustainable Development Goals, child budgeting and gender budgeting.
