According to the Economic Survey 2018-19, data must be treated as a public good, which can be used for social welfare and can also be monetised to ease pressure on government finances. However, privacy implications of the anonymised information should be factored in.

The survey highlighted that the government aims to give access of select data sets to private sector and analytical agencies on payment basis. This will ease pressure on government finances and generate insights and new products for both parties.

Further, as per the survey, there is a need to create a centralised system for storing all the data from different government sources together. This will hold far greater value as a collective than information in silos.

The survey also stressed upon a structural way of storing and using public data for the benefits of the public and the private sector, keeping in mind the need to ensure privacy of the public or anonymised data.
