How this dashboard is driving better policies
One day, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas noticed on the dashboard that lots of women were getting rejected by distributors.
After digging into the data, we found that it was happening because those women didn’t have bank accounts — a mandatory requirement for getting a connection. The minister immediately asked this:
"Why can’t we carry out Jan Dhan Yojana camps in those areas?"
The government set up the camps (which help people get bank accounts), bringing together two of India's most important schemes. Now the number of women getting rejected due to lack of bank accounts is nearly non-existent.
