|Data sharing portal launched in Sikkim|
GANGTOK, Sept 13 - The first data sharing and accessibility portal of Sikkim has been launched by Chief Minister Pawan Kumar Chamling.
Till now, there was no single platform where all the important statistics of the State and departments converged, a senior government official said.
Besides the State Data Sharing and Accessibility Platform (SDSAP), the State Direct Benefit Transfer portal was also launched at a programme here recently.
These two portals are information management systems for quick and easy recording and dissemination of statistical data by government officials.
The platform is intended to be used by all State Government departments and PSUs, the official said. It would increase transparency in the functioning of the government and open avenues for more innovative uses of official data. – PTI
