Reserve Bank of India Updates URL for ‘Database on Indian Economy’ Portal

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has announced a significant update to its ‘Database on Indian Economy’ (DBIE) portal, effective immediately. The portal’s domain address will now be accessed through https://data.rbi.org.in, consolidating its services and ensuring seamless access for users. Previously used URLs, such as https://dbie.rbi.org.in and https://cimsdbie.rbi.org.in, will automatically redirect to the new address.

Background and Evolution

Initially launched on November 1, 2004, the DBIE portal has evolved into a crucial resource for accessing a comprehensive range of economic and financial statistics. Over the years, it has expanded to include regular and ad hoc statistical publications, serving a diverse user base that includes Indian and international analysts, researchers, and citizens alike. Key features of the portal include the ‘SAARC Finance Database’ and the ‘Banking Outlet Locator’, providing valuable insights into regional finance and banking infrastructure.

Integration with Centralised Information Management System (CIMS)

The introduction of the Centralised Information Management System (CIMS) in June 2023 marked a significant enhancement in the RBI’s data management capabilities. Integrated with the DBIE portal, CIMS has further expanded the portal’s data coverage and improved accessibility. More details on CIMS can be explored at https://www.rbi.org.in/Scripts/BS_PressReleaseDisplay.aspx?prid=55962.

The transition to the new URL https://data.rbi.org.in underscores RBI’s commitment to modernizing its data services, aiming to enhance user experience and streamline access to critical economic data. This update reflects RBI’s ongoing efforts to adapt to evolving technological standards and meet the increasing demand for reliable economic information.
