Govt launches portal to monitor key performance metrics of ULBs

By TIOL News Service

NEW DELHI, NOV 14, 2023: THE 'AAINA Dashboard for Cities' portal www.aaina.gov.in has been made live by Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) yesterday where Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) across the country can participate in this pioneering initiative to voluntarily submit their key data on a regular basis, through a simple, easy-to-fill, data entry form on the portal.

The primary objectives of the AAINA Dashboard are to help cities to (i) see how they are faring vis-a-vis other cities, (ii) inspire them by pointing to possibilities and areas of improvement and (iii) providing opportunity to learn and engage with frontrunners. While not ranking the ULBs, the AAINA dashboard would serve as a tool for comparing similarly placed cities and promoting peer learning among cities.

The Dashboard will present the data submitted by the ULBs on the basis of indicators across five broad pillars namely, (i) Political & Administrative Structure, (ii) Finance, (iii) Planning, (iv) Citizen Centric Governance and (v) Delivery of Basic Services. The ULBs will submit their data, including audited accounts, and self-reported performance metrics by logging in to the dashboard's portal. ULBs would be free to update the information initially provided by them, anytime on the portal as per need. The Dashboard has been envisaged as a permanent platform for ULB related data, that would be updated on a regular basis. With active cooperation of all ULBs, the 'AAINA Dashboard for Cities' aims to create a robust database of the key performance metrics of Urban Local Bodies, which could be accessed by all stakeholders, and subsequently would open for public view once it gets populated. The Ministry through Digital India Corporation will provide handholding support to ULBs / States in the data submission process on a need basis.
