West Bengal Establishes Digital Data Management System for Schools

The School Education Department of the Government of West Bengal has established a digital system to manage data related to schools and school education incentives under the government.


Maintaining and using several data sources for information related to schools made the department’s work very tedious and complicated. Data being entered manually was vulnerable to errors, which in turn meant the reports made using said data were not factual and harmed the decision-making and administrative processes. Maintaining large traditional data records was not only complex and inconvenient, but it also made communication and sharing between stakeholders difficult. The absence of a single, easy-to-use, extensive school education-related database was sorely felt.


A unified digital symbiotic ecosystem was identified as a solution. This meant setting up a new data management system for all school-specific data about each education-related process. The platform has been set up at the State level and is used for data pertaining to students, teachers and schools. The virtual workspace can be used by every stakeholder.


Data for over 1.5 Crore students has been converted to digital format and uploaded to the new system, which allows live tracking and data sharing. The information dashboard is a robust function that allows enhanced monitoring of education-related data, which in turn facilitates effective policy interventions. The data is stored on a Cloud system which not only allows the institutions to maintain vast amounts of data but also access historical data easily for reference needs.


Getting all the staff and stakeholders used to a new digital system is challenging. Digital adoption in any field takes some time. Stakeholder training right from the state level to the school level was needed. Development and finessing of the portal had to be carried out in a timely fashion. The initial round of entering data into the system was challenging, and it was a priority to guarantee that no dataset or student information was missed.


The single database system follows student progression from beginning-to-end of the student enrolment life cycle. A student ID is assigned to each student and it is unique to the Banglar Shiksha 3.0 framework.

Data sanitisation at regular intervals is used along with several data verification checkpoints at different stakeholder tiers to ensure system accuracy and integrity.

Infrastructural and human resource requirements are governed by the RTE Act – 2009.


There is potential to expand the functions of the platform to integrate other classroom processes such as assessments, learning outcomes, student attendance and teaching practices. The system can also be expanded to incorporate a financial management function to track and monitor allocated funds. Budget monitoring and funds disbursement can likely be integrated into said financial management system.

The project has great potential for replication and can be incorporated in every type of school in the state. It might be possible to create an umbrella system for the school education sector in the state.
