The central government is creating a student-wise database of all the students enrolled in school in India. Under the project, (U-DISE) managed by National Institute of Educational Planning and Administration (), data of school teachers and students are being collected.

Minister of State (HRD), Upendra Kushwaha in a written reply to a Lok Sabha informed that as an integral part of the U-DISE, the department of School & Literacy has initiated SDMIS in 2016-17 to collect child-wise data with Aadhaar number.

Every student is provided a Unique Student ID generated through the system which would lead to the creation of a National level student-wise database giving full details of all students in all Government, Aided and Private schools from standard I to standard XII. This would also help to track all the students throughout the school-cycle.

The school based computerized Education Management Information System (EMIS) initiated in 1995 by NUEPA (the then 1) with support from MHRD and financial assistance from UNICEF was known as the District Information System for Education (DISE2). Beginning with 42 districts in seven states (Assam, Haryana, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu), the coverage of DISE was later on expanded to include 271 districts across 18 states with the scaling up of the DPEP.
