Automated Performance Smart-board launched by Hon'ble Minister for Electronics & Information Technology
Consolidating multiple data sources into one centralized platform, the automated real-time performance smart-board (https://meity.dashboard.nic.in/) of various programme divisions of MeitY was launched by Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister for Communications, Electronics & Information Technology and Law & Justice, during a programme held in New Delhi on 3rd October 2019. Developed by the National Informatics Centre (NIC), the smart-board is a generic dashboard application tool, which is used to rapidly prepare and deploy dashboard for respective Ministries/ Departments. The configurable and integrated dashboard displays information of important programmes/ schemes in an objective and quantifiable way, thereby enabling a comprehensive view of the whole issue in a single window access for Centre, State or District specific projects.
It has month-wise and year-wise achievements of programmes (20) of MeitY. The major programmes are Aadhar, Digital Payments, eTaal, BPO Promotion Scheme, Common Services Centre, Digital Literacy, DigiLocker, UMANG, NCoG, ServicePlus, eHospital, eProcurement, Open Government Data, eScholarship, MyGov, MeghRaj, Electronics Manufacturing and Skill Development Initiatives. It has been linked to various programme division web servers and gets updated automatically at the end of every month through web services. The dashboard can also be accessed through the main website of MeitY.

The Government at various levels is placing a lot of emphasis on providing the benefits of various developmental schemes and programmes to citizens in an easy, efficient and transparent mode, using state-of-the-art IT tools and facilities. In order to have an effective monitoring mechanism for proper planning, decision-making and coordination till last mile, it is important that the interface to the information pertaining to such important programmes/ schemes, along with their Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), be placed on a common integrated dashboard with associated data and drill down facilities for viewing by senior government officials. This will help measure outcome and impact of the projects and facilitate appropriate decisions and actions. The identified data could be integrated on dashboards using APIs for various software applications/ portals.
