DGQI is a survey conducted by the Development Monitoring and Evaluation Office (DMEO), NITI Aayog to assess different Ministries/Departments’ performance on the implementation of Central Sector Schemes (CS) and Centrally Sponsored Schemes (CSS).

The DMEO, NITI Aayog has undertaken DGQI exercise wherein self-assessment based review of data preparedness levels across the Ministries/Departments produced a DGQI scorecard. Accordingly, a survey was initiated with the objective of assessing data preparedness of Ministries/Departments on a standardized framework to drive healthy competition among them and promote cooperative peer learning from best practices.

In this survey, an online questionnaire was prepared under six major themes of DGQI: Data Generation; Data Quality; Use of Technology; Data Analysis, Use and Dissemination; Data Security and HR Capacity and Case Studies. Weightages were assigned to the themes and sub-weightages to each question within every theme to arrive at final DGQI scores ranging between 0 to 5 for every scheme. To avoid straight-forward irrelevant comparisons, Ministries/Departments were classified into six categories: Administrative, Strategic, Infrastructure, Social, Economic and Scientific.

The questionnaire was then shared with the Ministries/Departments, which are implementing CS / CSS schemes. Inputs have been collected from 65 Ministries/Departments implementing 250 CS / CSS schemes and their scores were accordingly calculated.
