AAINA Dashboard for Cities’ portal

News Excerpt:

Recently, The ‘AAINA Dashboard for Cities’ portal has been made live by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA).


  • The portal, www.aaina.gov.in, serves as the platform for Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) nationwide to voluntarily submit key data regularly.
  • The primary goals include 
    • enabling cities to compare their performance, 
    • inspiring improvements, and
  • facilitating peer learning among Urban Local Bodies.

  • The Dashboard categorizes data into five broad pillars - 
    • Political & Administrative Structure, 
    • Finance, 
    • Planning, 
    • Citizen Centric Governance, and 
    • Delivery of Basic Services.
  • ULBs submit data, including audited accounts and self-reported performance metrics, through an easy-to-fill data entry form on the portal.
  • Envisioned as a permanent platform, the AAINA Dashboard aims to create a robust database of key performance metrics for ULBs, updated regularly. Handholding support is provided to ULBs by the Ministry through Digital India Corporation as needed.
  • While not ranking the ULBs, the AAINA dashboard would serve as a tool for comparing similarly placed cities and promoting peer learning among cities.
