New Delhi, March 6 (IANS) In order to further empower the digital transformation of governance, Union IT and Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw will launch NITI Aayog’s ‘NITI For States’ platform in the Capital on Thursday.

The ‘NITI For States’ is a cross-sectoral knowledge platform designed to become a Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) for policy and good governance.

The IT Minister will also inaugurate ‘Viksit Bharat Strategy Room’ at NITI Aayog, which will enable rich visualisation and engagement with insights, information and knowledge to “enable effective in-person decision-making”.

The ‘NITI For States’ platform will facilitate the digital transformation of governance by equipping government officials with robust, contextually relevant, and actionable knowledge and insights, thereby enhancing the quality of their decision-making.

The significant features of the platform include a multi-sectoral live repository of 7,500 best practices, 5,000 policy documents, more than 900 datasets, 1,400 data profiles, and 350 NITI publications, NITI Aayog said in a statement.

The knowledge products on the platform span 10 sectors including agriculture, education, energy, health, livelihoods and skilling, manufacturing, MSME, tourism, urban, water resources and WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) across two cross-cutting themes – gender and climate change.

The platform will also support cutting-edge level functionaries like district collectors and block-level functionaries by giving them access to innovative best practices across various States and UTs, said NITI Aayog.
