India’s school database is known as UDISE (Unified District Information System for Education). The National Informatics Centre of the Government of India maintains this database, originally created at the Department of School Education, MHRD, Govt. of India. UDISE monitors details such as the percentage of dropouts and the condition of restrooms in schools.

UDISE stands out as one of the largest management information systems for school education, encompassing over 1.5 million schools, more than 9.6 million teachers, and over 264 million children. It was initiated in the academic year 2012–13 and integrates DISE for elementary and secondary education. An upgraded and modernized version, UDISE+, has been in operation since 2018–19. The entire system now collects real-time online data. The primary objective of UDISE+ is to compile data from all schools providing official instruction for Classes I through XII.
