Open Budgets India - New in 2023

Dear Forum members!

We are pleased to inform you that OBI has major updates already LIVE! There are new dashboards, features, and data that’ll increase the utility of the platform for budget enthusiasts. Below is a summary of the updates. We hope you’ll check it out and let us know your thoughts and feedback.

  1. Budget 2023-24: Union Budget was presented on February 1. All the budget datasets and documents are now available on OBI. You can also go to our Union Budget Explorer to understand the budget data through interactive visualisations. As states continue to publish budget datasets, we’ll upload them on the platform.

  2. District Dashboard: For the first time, data is available on how much public funds have been spent on 12 major schemes within district boundaries. We have started with 6 states (Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh). Check it out here.

  3. Constituency Dashboard: Users can also now find how much money has been allocated and spent on 12 major schemes across 214 Lok Sabha Constituencies and 1252 Vidhan Sabha Constituencies in 6 states (Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh). Check it out here.

  4. Schemes Dashboard has been updated with new centrally sponsored schemes and state schemes with the latest data. Sector Dashboard has also been updated with the latest available data.

Coming Soon

Assam Budget Explorer and Odisha Budget Explorer for 2023-24 will be updated soon. We are also delighted to announce that Kerala and Tamil Nadu have joined Assam and Odisha to publish budget documents in excel format starting from this year! The budget explorers for these new states are also in the works.

As always, we look forward to your feedback and suggestions to help us improve the platform. If you have any questions, please feel free to post below and one of the team members will respond to you as soon as possible.
