The department struggled with poor maintenance of academic and administrative data related to higher education. Access was tedious for both students as well as government officials. A portal has been developed dedicated to collecting and maintaining data related to higher education institutions in the state. The data is updated frequently so that each student can be individually monitored. The student admission module incorporates category-wise data related to admissions.

Over 12.5 lakh students have made use of the portal in a single year.
