Inaugurating the portal, he said that it will be a "first-of-its-kind online platform" where Global Innovation Index (GII) indicators and India-centric data from various states will be updated periodically. "This will be a one-stop data warehouse and will track progress on each indicator at the National level and the State level on real-time basis," he said.

The access to the portal will be hosted on the NITI Aayog website. "Data collated on this portal will not only be used to ameliorate current data gaps with respect to the GII, but be the prime source for the India Innovation Index," a government statement said.

The index was launched in collaboration with Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion and Confederation of Indian Industry. India currently ranks 66th out of 128 countries on the GII 2016.
