The Constitution Club of India is a collective of Indian Parliamentarians, who have united together to serve the purpose of supporting one another. The Club, acts as a platform for Members of Parliament to engage with each other on issues of policy making and governance and is committed to provide assistance to them. Given that Constituency level development is a critical role of a Member of Parliament as an elected representative and no such human resources are available to them for this purpose, the Club in partnership with Tata Trusts and Swaniti Initiative formulated the SPARC Program. With a wide network among Parliamentarians and policy makers, the Club will act as a technical support partner for the program.
Tata Trusts is amongst India’s oldest, non-sectarian philanthropic organizations that work in several areas of community development viz. education; healthcare and nutrition; rural livelihoods; natural resource management; data-driven governance; enhancing civil society and governance and media, arts, crafts, and culture.
Policy makers and administrators today have an opportunity to make use of the big data revolution for better delivery of services. Realising the value of ‘technology’ and ‘data’ and how it can potentially revolutionise decision making, Tata Trusts have actively taken up the agenda of striving towards ‘data-driven governance’, to inform, impact and improve policy making, with a view to facilitate holistic development of the nation including infrastructure and human development.
