Specifications of Generic data Elements and their Metadata

Allocation of Reference Numbers to the identified Generic Data Elements

Purpose

With the objective of linking the identified Generic data elements with their metadata, each one of them has been allocated a unique reference number. Further, the reference numbers are codified to ensure logical grouping of relevant generic data elements, some of which may be identified in future.

The coding scheme of Universal Postal Union (UPU) Standards S42a-5 and S42b-5 has been adopted for structuring of these reference numbers.

Rationale of Grouping of Generic Data Elements for their Codification

The Generic data elements identified for standardization can be described as:
  • Data elements having distinct identity with only one level of description
  • Data elements having two levels of description, where 2nd level describes the subtypes.
    These subtypes can be “Instances” or “Parts”, which also have distinct identity

Here Instance (a type representing the same data element in a different way) means representation of the same root data element at 1st level in different formats, which may or may not be mandatory to describe the root data element. For example, the generic data element “Date” can have different instances to represent date in different formats.

For example, one instance may represent the Date in format say dd/mm/yyyy, and another instance may represent the date in different format say dd-mm-yyyy

Part means physical sub division of the root data element at 1st level or its instance. The parts are mandatory to describe the root data element. For example, to describe the data element, “Date”, the parts- “day”, “month” and “year” - are mandatory.

For the purpose of standardization and interoperability, data elements of domain applications would be derived from the generic data elements, if applicable

Codification Scheme for Reference Numbers of Data Elements

A codification scheme has been adopted for grouping and referencing of data elements at two levels. The coding scheme represents an e-Governance domain, data element within the domain, instance of data element, and part of the data element, structured as domain no (xx): data element no within domain (yy)-Instance number (nn) - part number (mm).

S.No Data Element Instance ( a type representing the same data element in different way) Parts Codification scheme for its reference number
1 Data element having no parts and no instances NA NA xx.yy
2 Data element having only instances, and no parts Applicable NA
xx.yy-nn
For example: xx.yy-01 xx.yy-02
3 Data element having only parts and no instances NA Applicable
xx.yy-00-mm

For example : xx.yy-00-01

xx.yy-00-02
4 Data element having parts as well as instances Applicable Applicable
xx.yy-nn-mm
For example: xx.yy-01 -01 xx.yy-02-01 xx.yy-01-02 xx.yy-02-02

Here, xx : Defines the Domain number yy: Defines the Data Element number within the domain xx xx.yy-01 : Defines an Instance of Data element xx.yy xx.yy-00-01: Defines a Part of Data element xx.yy xx.yy-01-01: Defines the Instance of the Data element part xx.yy-00-01

Further “G” will be prefixed to indicate that the referenced data element is Generic, and “C” will be prefixed to indicate that the referenced data element is Customized for a specific purpose in the domain application, like “Date of Birth” derived from the generic data element “ Date”.

Illustrations of Codification Scheme

  1. Data element “Date” has three parts like: Day, Month, Year Hence, reference numbers for Generic data element “date”, and its parts would be as follows:
Domain name (xx): Common for all domain applications G00
Data Element: Date (in dd/mm/yyyy) format) G00.01
1st Part of Date : Day G00.01-00-01
2nd Part of Date : Month G00.01-00-02
3rd Part of Date : Year G01.01-00-03
  1. Reference number of data element “Measurement” and its instances (different ways of a measurement) like: - Measurement of Distance in Meters/ Kilometers/ Centimeters/ Millimeters - Measurement of Area in Square Meters/ Kilometers/ Centimeters/ Millimeters/Hectares - Measurement of Volume in Cubic Meter/ Cubic Centimeter / Cubic Milliliters - Measurement of Weight in Gram / Kilogram

Hence the data element “measurement” will have difference instances, which would have reference numbers as follows:

Domain name (xx): Common for all domain applications G00
Generic Data element: Measurement G00.02
   
Measurement- Distance in Meters G00.02-11
Measurement- Distance in Kilometers G00.02-12
Measurement- Distance in Centimeters G00.02-13
Measurement- Distance in Millimeters G00.02-14
Measurement- Area in Square Meters G00.02-21
Measurement- Area in Square Kilometers G00.02-22
Measurement- Area in Square Centimeters G00.02-23
Measurement- Area in Square Millimeters G00.02-24
Measurement- Area in Hectares G00.02-25
Measurement- Volume in Cubic Meters G00.02-31
Measurement- Volume in Cubic Kilometers G00.02-32
Measurement- Volume in Cubic Centimeters G00.02-33
Measurement- Volume in Cubic Millimeters G00.02-34
Measurement- Weight in Grams G00.02-41
Measurement- Weight in Kilograms G00.02.42
Measurement - Weight in Quintal G00.02.43

List of Identified Generic Data Elements

Three types of generic data elements have been identified in the present version of MDDS standard, as listed below:

  • Domain No. 00 - Generic data elements Common across all Domain applications
  • Domain No. 01 - Generic data elements specific to Person Identification
  • Domain No. 02 - Generic data elements specific to Land Region codification
Note:

a. With time, list of these domains would increase with standardization of generic data elements within the domains by using the above mentioned procedure of allocation of reference numbers to the identified data elements.

b. Storage format for all the Generic data elements in recognized Official language would be UTF-8, as recommended by Expert Committee on Indian Languages.

Refer Annexure- II for an illustration of Person Identification data elements derived from the Generic Data elements.

Generic Data Elements specific to Land Region Codification

  1. Objective of Land Region Codification
    • To uniquely codify / describe geographically, a Land region and location of various Premises like buildings, establishments, residential /non-residential units, commercial units, institutes, land marks etc.
    • To identify Generic data elements associated with land regions, standardization of their metadata (business formats, validation checks, values, declarations, version, and ownership etc.), to meet requirements of interoperability for vertical / horizontal data exchange between various domain applications in e-Governance.
    • To identify data elements / attributes associated with Address Location.
    • To geographically represent the Address of a Premises to be taken up in (Phase - II)
  2. Specification of Data Elements for Land Region Codification

Two Types of Land Region models in India

a. Based on Revenue Land Region, which is adopted by Office of Registrar General of India for the purpose of Census.

  1. Based on Development Administration like Village/ Block / District Panchayat, Town Panchayat, Municipality, Corporation etc, as depicted below:

Note: Revenue Land Region model has been adopted for Land Region codification by the Expert Committee for MDDS.

Revenue village has been taken as smallest unit of Land region, for the purpose of standardization in the present version of the document.

../_images/revenue_land_regioin.jpg

Land Region Codified in the present version of the document

  1. Codification of Address of Premises
../_images/land_record.png

Land Region Codified in the present version of the document

The Address of premises has mainly two components:

  • House / Locality Details ( Coding not Standardized in this document)
  • Land Region Details (Coding Standardized in this document)

Note: There could be a requirement of storing the address of a premises bilingually ( English and Recognized Official language of the State ). In such cases, usually, the data is captured in local language, and stored in English also. For this purpose, either the data will have to be captured in both the languages or there should be a mechanism to transliterate / translate the data from local language to English or vice versa, accurately without losing its meaning. This issue is NOT addressed in this document.

  1. Segmented Approach for Address of Premises would be as follows:
    • Segment 1 – Premises Identifier
    • Segment 2 - Sub-locality Identifier
    • Segment 3 - Land Region Identifier (Revenue Village / Town / District / State)
    • Segment 4 - Additional data elements / attributes for internal storage only, which may be required for different purposes and interoperability with other domain applications.

The above has been diagrammatically explained below along with recommended printing of address lines:

Note:

  1. Over the years Office of Census Commissioner, India while conducting the decadal census, has developed code directories for a number of variables and standardized definitions etc. These are available on their web site also. Moreover, a number of Departments / Organizations have become conversant with these parameters. The committee recommends that this practice can continue till the identified code directories owners review the values in the code directories and decide to revise them.
  2. Responsibility of maintenance of Centralized Repository Code Directory including allocation of new Land Region codes would be with Office of Registrar General of India (ORGI) on the basis of notification of changes for the same issued by Competent State Authorities from time to time.
  3. Refer to Annexure IV for values in the Code Directories, as on date. The Standards website may be visited on regular basis to get latest updations.
