An Indian minister Jitendra Singh launched Wednesday an online dashboard developed by Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances (DARPG).

Jitendra Singh said that the DARPG is the nodal department for the dashboard, but it will also be helpful to the concerned Ministries / Departments to monitor the implementation of various initiatives and will provide inputs to them.
