Welcome To Extended U-DISE (ShaalaKosh)
Extended U-DISE (ShaalaKosh) is a unique initiative of MHRD which aims to create a single platform to meet the data requirements of all stakeholders in school education ecosystem. The platform will cater to entire value chain requirements of the three key stakeholders - student, teacher and school management.

The vision of Extended U-DISE (ShaalaKosh) is to leverage technology (mobiles, tablets, web based applications) to enable data collection in streamlined manner with aims to fulfil data needs of school education in the country.
It also seeks to provide a common platform that will unify all the digital systems at the Central and State level. This will improve accessibility of data, promote standardization, and enable data usage to improve efficiency, create transparency and enhance accountability in system. All these changes will invariably result into improved student learning outcomes in longer run.
I believe Extended U-DISE (ShaalaKosh) will be a lighthouse that will guide all data driven decision making from classroom level to national level and is posed to bring a paradigm shift in education scenario of our country.
Through Extended U-DISE (ShaalaKosh), MHRD aims to revolutionize education data systems throughout the country. The scale of the project we have embarked on is unparalleled and this is globally a one-of -its kind system. A key point of note here is that we are using U-DISE as the base platform since this is the most universally adopted system across the country.
A significant feature of this Extended U-DISE (ShaalaKosh) platform will be to allow states to customize as per their own requirements. The idea is to empower state by providing the best technology and learning from various national and international platform. It will even promote better coordination between Centre and states, thereby making ShaalaKosh a flagship project within India’s education system.
I strongly believe Extended U-DISE (ShaalaKosh) will be a cornerstone in India’s education system for many years to come.
Extended U-DISE (ShaalaKosh) is a novel initiative in terms of Data Management for eGovernance in India. The architecture is designed in a manner where a federated data warehouse of Education related data would come into existence covering the Central Ministry and the State Education Departments in all States. While a common framework is being rolled out across States, the system would be flexible enough for States to build upon for state specific data needs. The system is being equipped with data analytical capabilities for decision makers at State and Central level. In all the System post implementation across all States will be an excellent example of cooperative federalism in the E-Governance space.
