Chief Secretary Aditya Prasad Padhi on Tuesday said the Social Registry and Integrated Social Protection Delivery Platform (SPDP) in Odisha is based on the 5-T principle of the State Povernment to cater to citizen’s need more efficiently.

Mr.Padhi, addressing a national level workshop in this regard here which was attended by  experts from World Bank, various States and the Union Government to share knowledge, experience and best practices in the matter, also emphasized on appropriate and ethical use of the data incorporated in Social Registry.

"SPDP is based on 5T principles of the Government and this will help in catering to citizen's need more efficiently," Mr.Padhi said adding, “SPDP needs building up a Social Registry of the Citizens with concrete and authenticated data base.”
