Welcome to Multi Purpose Household Survey(MPHS)-Uttarakhand !
  Multi Purpose Household Survey(MPHS) - Uttarakhand Govt.

Congratulations! On Successful Completion of MPHS in all the 63 Urban Local Bodies of Uttarakhand.      


The Government of Uttarakhand (GoUA) has undertaken the development of a State Portal under the “Pro-poor IT initiatives” program. This is a key initiative and serves as the portal for all citizens to interact with the government.

GoUA has been in the forefront of empowering urban/local body institutions. GoUA aims at strengthening these institutions fiscally, administratively and legally to deliver better targeted quality services to its constituents. Current initiatives have been directed towards taking decentralization forward and empowerment to function as effective institutions of participatory democracy. The primary goals are to strengthen urban/local bodies and make them effective instruments of local decision-making based on local priorities, concentrate on improving the quality of governance, and better targeting of social and general services being provided.

In order to enhance the functional effectiveness of various Government agencies it is critical to have a central repository of several kinds of data that comprehensively captures the different aspects of citizens. Such a data vault would transcend the boundaries of a single department and provide a complete view of the citizen for decision making. Putting together such a comprehensive multi dimensional data in a Central Data Vault (CDV) would involve several activities which amongst other things are identifying the data needs, constructing the data model, clean up all existing data, bridge gaps in data and provide a technology infrastructure to host and maintain the data. At the same time GoUA wishes to establish a secure system in place for authentication for variety of transactions between Government and Citizens using PKI and multipurpose SMART CARDS under this project.

GoUA now proposes to create such a centralized multipurpose database that will enhance the effectiveness, transparency and accountability in the processes of the government departments to enable better planning and delivery of government services.

This project is conceived in order to handle following basic issues which become hurdles in spite of noble intentions and the recognition of benefits to both government and citizens as a result of successful collaboration with in the government.
