Digitisation of Anganwadi Centres (AWCS)
Currently, the Ministry runs the mobile based job-aid Application (ICDS-CAS) in an attempt to use technology for improved service delivery. This system covers only 351 districts of the country.
State-wise status of implementation of ICDS-CAS is at Annexure-I.
ICDS-CAS is not integrated with Mother &Child Tracking System/Reproductive Child Health (RCH) portal of MoHFW.
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.
The child beneficiaries under the Anganwadi Services Scheme are provided Supplementary Nutrition as per the guidelines of the Scheme. Monthly Village Health and Sanitation Day and Community Based Events are organised by States/UTs to improve status of nutrition of children. In addition,children (3-6 years) are provided non-formal Pre-School Education service in all AWCs. Funds @ Rs. 5,000/- per AWC per annum is provided to States/UTs for imparting non-formal pre-school education to the children.
This information was given in a written reply by the Union Minister of Women and Child Development, Smt. Smriti Zubin Irani in Lok Sabha today.
