India Data Portal 2.0 : A Paradigm Shift towards Data Accessibility, Visualisation and Analysis.

Indian School of Business (ISB) launched India Data Portal 2.0, a state-of-the-art platform re-engineered to revolutionise data accessibility, analysis, and visualisation. Departing from its previous technology, the revamped portal is the outcome of an ambitious endeavour that becomes a part of an open-source ecosystem to promote evidence-based policymaking in the country. The portal has been developed and maintained by the in-house Data-Technical team at Bharti Institute of Public Policy at ISB.

The India Data Portal’s one of its kind "Visualisations First Approach" empowers users to seamlessly access an extensive array of over 3,400 indicators from more than 120 datasets. The India Data Portal 2.0 includes an innovative feature that allows users to upload their own datasets, ensuring privacy for their personal exploration and visualization endeavours.

The strategic enhancements ensure advanced data findability, interoperability, and usability characteristics – a precursor to the future where data accessibility transcends traditional boundaries of exploration and visualisation of datasets.


Technological Advancements

The portal has been meticulously deployed with a technologically advanced, scalable, and easily maintainable architecture, empowered by a network of micro-services.

Visualisations First Approach

Immerse in the pioneering "Visualisations First Approach," allows users to seamlessly bring graphs from an extensive repository of over 3,400 indicators. These indicators encompass a rich array of more than 120 datasets from 25 vast spectrum - Climate and Weather, Commerce, Crime, Economy, Education, Financial Inclusion, Fisheries and Animal Husbandry, Food and Agriculture, Forestry and Wildlife, General, Government Schemes, Health, Nutrition, Rural Development, Socio Economic, and Union Budget and many more. 

Upload Your Own Data

Users now have the privilege of uploading their own datasets, maintaining privacy for their personal exploration and visualisation endeavours.


Guided by an advisory council of eminent policymakers, academicians, industry leaders and commentators, the small and tightly-knit but growing team at the IDP enjoys working on research trends.
