The Performance Grading Index for Districts (PGI-D) was released by the Department of School Education and Literacy (DoSE&L), marking a substantial improvement in the educational system. The Ministry of Education conducted this extensive report with the goal of evaluating and improving district-level school performance.

Understanding PGI-D 

A ground-breaking study that assesses the efficiency of the educational system in various districts across the nation is called the Performance Grading Index for Districts (PGI-D).

Insights from the PGI-D 
  1. Scale of Education: The Indian Education System boasts an impressive network, with approximately 14.9 lakh (or 1,490,000) schools catering to around 26.5 crore (or 265 million) students from diverse socio-economic backgrounds. 
  2. Educators’ Strength: To support this vast educational landscape, there are approximately 95 lakh (or 9.5 million) dedicated teachers working tirelessly to impart knowledge and shape young minds. 
  3. PGI-D Structure: The PGI-D utilizes an 83-indicator-based grading system that falls under six categories and 12 domains. These categories include Outcomes, Effective Classroom Transaction, Infrastructure Facilities & Student’s Entitlements, School Safety & Child Protection, Digital Learning, and Governance Process. 
  4. Grading System: The PGI-D grades districts on a scale of ten. The highest grade, Daksh, is achieved by districts scoring over 90% of the total points, while the lowest grade, Akanshi-3, represents scores up to 10% of the total points. 
Objective and Impact 

The PGI-D’s main goal is to provide districts the authority to identify and prioritise the areas that need improvement in order to improve performance.
