RBI sets up Committee on Data and Information Management in the Reserve Bank of India

It has been decided to constitute a Committee (Chairman: Shri Deepak Mohanty, Executive Director) to comprehensively review the current system of data collection, dissemination and data management processes in the RBI and examine the feasibility of moving towards granular, multi-purpose data collection and more integrated and structured data production processes within the RBI. The Committee will recommend measures with a view to further reducing the burden on reporting entities, delivering quality information to data users and reinforcing the management information system for policy making.

  3. In the light of (i) and (ii) above, suggest changes in the process of receipt, storage, access, management and dissemination of monetary, macro-financial and supervisory data.

  4. In order to achieve (iii) above, suggest necessary institutional and technological changes within the Reserve Bank to make available consistent data from a single source for all user groups as well as for management decision making.

  5. To suggest complementary technological and process changes at the level of banks so that granular data are made available from the source system which could ensure data integrity.

  6. To consider any other related matter.

The Committee may consult banks, market participants, experts and departments of the Reserve Bank as considered necessary. The Committee is expected to submit its report within a period of four months from the day of its first meeting.
