PRAGATI (Pro-Active Governance and Timely Implementation) Platform Launched
Mar 30, 2015

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched multi-purpose and multi-modal platform PRAGATI (Pro-Active Governance and Timely Implementation), which is a unique integrating and interactive platform. The platform is aimed at addressing common man’s grievances, and simultaneously monitoring and reviewing important programmes and projects of the Government of India as well as projects flagged by State Governments. 

Key Features

  • A built-in feature of PRAGATI is that these directions will remain in the system for further follow up and review till the finality of the matter. 

  • The PRAGATI platform uniquely bundles three latest technologies: Digital data management, video-conferencing and geo-spatial technology. 

  • It also offers a combination in the direction of cooperative federalism since it brings on one stage the Secretaries of Government of India and the Chief Secretaries of the States. 

  • It is a three-tier system (PMO, Union Government Secretaries, and Chief Secretaries of the States). 

  • Prime Minister will hold a monthly programme where he will interact with the Government of India Secretaries, and Chief Secretaries through Video-conferencing enabled by data and geo-informatics visuals. 

  • It will be held once in every month on Fourth Wednesday at 3.30 p.m.-to be known as PRAGATI Day. 

  • Issues to be flagged before the PM are picked up from the available database regarding Public Grievances, on-going Programmes and pending Projects. 

  • It will also take into consideration various correspondences to PM’s office by the common people or from high dignitaries of States and/or developers of public projects. 

  • The issues flagged are uploaded seven days prior to the PRAGATI day (i.e. on third Wednesday of every month). 

  • These issues can be viewed by the Union Government Secretaries and Chief Secretaries after entering into the application. 

  • User ID and Password for each of the Union Government Secretaries and Chief Secretaries have been created and made available. 

  • Union Government Secretaries and Chief Secretaries will be able to see the issues pertaining to their Department/State. 

  • Union Government Secretaries and Chief Secretaries have to put their comments and updates about the flagged issues within three days (i.e. by next Monday). 

  • One day—Tuesday is available to the PMO team to review the data entered by the Union Government Secretaries and Chief Secretaries. 

  • The design is such, that when PM reviews the issue he should have on his screen the issue as well as the latest updates and visuals regarding the same. 


The system has been designed in-house by the PMO team with the help of National Informatics Center (NIC). As the name suggests, it is aimed at starting a culture of Pro-Active Governance and Timely Implementation. It is also a robust system for bringing e-transparency and e-accountability with real-time presence and exchange among the key stakeholders.
