Building Related Information & Knowledge System (BRIKS) :

To develop a state-of-the-art fully computerised Management Information System on housing and building statistics. The e-unit in NBO will be up-linked to state Governments Departments of /Bureaus of Economics & Statistics, Municipal Administration, Municipal Corporations, Municipalities etc.

The National Statistical commission recommended for looking into the various aspects of the entire construction sector for formulation of policies of national interest, specifically to access the impact of the various policies of the Ministry. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) on construction statistics was set up to look in to the various aspects of the construction sector like thecurrent status of data, data gaps, methodological problems, review the system of regular data collection etc. According to these recommendations, NBO needs to collect data from various sources related to the construction sector and submit various reports on the basis of those data.This is the first attempt to computerise to collect, collate, validate, analyse, disseminate and publish building construction, housing and other related statistics and statistical reports from time to time and also to bring out compendiums on urban poverty, slums, housing and build construction statistics and applied research publications analysing statistical data gathered from various sources such as the Census, NSSO etc. This application should generate various reports by accessing and formatting raw data on construction activities in India.
