PM GatiShakti maps data layers related to social sector infrastructure

For optimum use of PM GatiShakti principles in planning both physical and social infrastructure, data layers are being mapped and validated for health, education, culture, tourism, gram panchayats, municipal corporations, social welfare housing, etc. The Special Secretary (Logistics), DPIIT informed this at the meeting on the onboarding of Social Sector Ministries/Departments at Vanijya Bhawan, New Delhi.

The meeting was attended by the Ministry of Housing of Urban Affairs, Department of School Education & Literacy, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Tribal Affairs, Ministry of Panchayati Raj, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Ministry for Women and Child Development, Ministry of Sports, Ministry of Rural Development, Ministry of Culture, Department of Posts and BISAG-N. Now that the 12 departments and ministries have been onboarded, they’re integrating their data onto the NMP Platform, which includes lots of important layers like schools, hospitals, Anganwadi, etc.

During the presentation, BISAG-N talked about decision-making and planning tools, use cases for connecting model schools and disaster management, and why social sector ministries/departments should adopt NMP.

Ministry/Department representatives talked about GatiShakti, the data layers that can be integrated with NMP, and the integration challenges they’re facing.

Following the presentations, deliberations were held with the participants, and they generated some interesting and useful ideas, like mapping out the accessibility of Anganwadi centers, evaluating locations for setting up a new technical institute to promote industry links, figuring out where schools and if they’re connected, etc.
