Recent UDISE Data & Analysis

The District Information System for Education (DISE) initiated in 1994 was a joint effort to strengthening Educational Database in India at school level of education which was managed by NIEPA, New Delhi since inception to 2017-18. Thereafter, from 2018-19 the same is now being managed by the Department of School Education & Literacy, Ministry of Education who has entrusted the task to NIC which has developed an online portal.

How Much We Gained: A Case of U-DISE+

Year 2021-22 is going on and the limited U-DISE+ data is made available only for the year 2018-19. It may be of interest to observe that not a single publication based on U-DISE+ data has yet been brought out as against 15+ publication used to be brought out annually by NIEPA, New Delhi.

In this section, recent Unified-DISE (UDISE) publications has been presented. It is important to compare the statistics brought out under the banner of U-DISE+ for 2018-19 with the previous year 2017-18 under the banner of UDISE by NIEPA, New Delhi. More specifically, School Education in India: Flash Statistics, 2017-18 (Provisional) disseminated recently in April 2021 by NIEPA is presented along with Tables in EXCEL Format and the same is compared with the U-DISE+ data for the year 2018-19 which shows that 2018-19 data is based of incomplete data.

Annual Work Plan & Budget has also been derailed as for the two continuous years, the district and state plans were based on 2017-18 data. For the year 2021-22, states are advised to use the latest data 2019-20 data in formulating A WP&B. Not all the states have fully used UDISE+ 2018-19 data. Year 2021-22 plans should have at least be based on 2020-21 data but the process of the same in good number of states is yet to be initiated. As it seems that many achievements of earlier U-DISE under NIEPA has lost to UDISE+ from the year 2018-19. It is important to study what we have gained?
