New Delhi, Sep 23 (PTI) The Women and Child Development Ministry said it has conceptualised a digital platform, 'Poshan Tracker', for holistic implementation and real-time evaluation of anganwadi and other schemes under the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS).
In a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha, WCD Minister Smriti Irani said currently, the ministry runs the mobile based job-aid application (ICDS-CAS) in an attempt to use technology for improved service delivery and this system covers only 351 districts of the country.
'The Ministry of WCD has conceptualized a digital platform, Poshan Tracker, which will be an overarching system, providing facilities, services and interlinkages, and thereby also promote real-time data with analytics,' Irani said.
She presented data according to which 6,37,155 ICDS-CAS mobile users are presently there.
She was responding to a question by a parliamentarian on 'whether the government is considering a proposal for effective monitoring of anganwadi centres (AWCs) across the country through digitisation'. PTI UZM SMN SMN
