It uses the UDISE (Unified District Information System for Education), the NAS (National Assessment survey) and demographic data and can be used as a visual tool by policy makers, senior government officials, academia, and researchers to address gaps and monitor programs in the field of education."Since the enactment of the Right to Education Act, much progress has been made in areas of systemic readiness, improved access and enrolment of children, providing infrastructure, especially sanitation facilities in schools, recruitment of teachers and training of untrained teachers.

Still, there is a need to do more for translating these results for higher classes and assuring that the requisite skills are built for a smooth transition to livelihood," said Yasmin Ali Haque, UNICEF Representative in India.
