Current context: National Data Governance Policy is a policy introduced by the Government of India (GoI) to manage the usage, security, availability, and integrity of data.
GoI to launch National Data Governance Policy
  • The policy was announced in the Union Budget 2023 presentation by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman.
  • The policy will create an Indian Data Management Office (IDMO) under the IT Ministry, which will focus on increasing access to anonymised data safely and securely.
  • The main objective of the policy is to make data secure and available to startups in India, and is considered a first step towards a digital government.
