What is CM’s dashboard and how it works?

CM’s dashboard is nothing but the information of various departments displayed on a single screen. One can check all the department activities on a real-time basis. The data displayed on the screen is monitored by department heads. Being the first state to make use of this technology, the initiative has received tremendous appreciation from various realms including Niti Ayog and International political platform called High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) at the international conference on sustainable development held in New York.
