Data Driven Governance with SocialCops

Pooja Verulkar (NIRMAN 7), an engineer by education, was working in a corporate company; she left her job and joined SocialCops, a data intelligence company and now working for implementation of Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana in Chandrapur district. Pooja is telling about her decision…

Why did I leave Mu_Sigma?
I was working for providing data driven decisions to solve business problems of foreign clients. Though this job was good for my personal growth as I was learning a lot, I could not see any visible impact of my work. I enjoyed working on the projects but was not sure if my work is making any impact. After Nirman 7.1 camp, I realised the question I need to find an answer for is- majhi garaj kuthe ahe? So I left the job at Mu Sigma.

Why Socialcorps? What is the project?
I started searching for something which will align with my capabilities and where my work will matter. As I was interested in data science, I started searching for opportunities where data science is used for decision making in the development sector. Then I came to know about SocialCops which works in data driven governance domain.

My role in SocialCops:
I joined SocialCops as Implementation lead in Chandrapur. In partnership with Socialcops, Tata trusts are working in Chandrapur for the development of villages in three blocks of Chandrapur through the data-driven implementation of Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojna. An online dashboard has been created which is used by the government officials for village development planning. Currently, I am working on creating a real-time monitoring of the village development activities which will enable the higher officials to track the development of villages online. My primary role is to understand how the government takes decisions and how it can be made better by making efficient use of data.
Data-driven governance is a new and very interesting domain to work in. I want to work on institutionalising data-driven governance to make the decision making better.
