Mumbai, 21st October 2022: The country’s first Migration Monitoring System, which provides updated information on migrant pregnant women, lactating mothers and children instantly on a single system, was inaugurated by Women and Child Development Minister Mangalprabhat Lodha. The Department of Women and Child Development has developed the first Maharashtra Migration Tracking System in the country.
Minister Lodha said that the department created a website-based Migration Tracking System (MTS) to track the movements of vulnerable seasonal migrant beneficiaries through individual unique identification numbers. Due to this system, the information on seasonal migrant women and children will be available immediately, which will make it easier for the beneficiaries to get the benefits of the government schemes.
In this program held in the Ministry, Principal Secretary of Women and Child Development Department, I. A. Kundan, Women and Child Development Commissioner R. Vimla, Commissioner for Integrated Child Development Services Scheme Rubal Aggarwal, Member Secretary of Women Commission Shraddha Joshi, Joint Secretary Ahire, Deputy Secretary V. Thakur, Deputy Commissioner Vijay Kshirsagar, Rajmata Jijau Mission Director Sanjiv Jadhav, Under Secretary Jehangir Khan, Program Officer Tiksha Sankhe, Digvijay Bendrikar Shinde, and other dignitaries were present.
Principal Secretary I.A. Kundan said that in November last year in pilot form in six districts of Chandrapur, Amravati, Jalna, Palghar, Nandurbar and Gadchiroli, filling the information of beneficiaries in the web-based app was started on a pilot basis with the help of this system. After studying the process of migration of women and children, the information of the beneficiaries was filled in the mobile app with the help of Anganwadi workers and supervisors. Efforts were made to provide Anganwadi services to the migrant beneficiaries at that place (destination). Such improvements were made in the app after studying the challenges encountered in this process. Now the process of registering the migrant beneficiaries across the state will be started in this mobile app on this occasion.
Tiksha Sankhe, Shivani Prasad, and Digvijay Bendrikar Shinde, Program Officers of Rajmata Mission have developed this system. The website is https://mahamts.in/login, and the MahaMTS App is available in Google Play Store. It is possible to easily fill the information to department officials, Anganwadi workers and supervisors.
MahaMTS app and https://mahamts.in/login information about food distribution, vaccination, Amrit diet scheme, health check-up, and others can be implemented effectively. The reasons for seasonal migration of native addresses of pregnant women, lactating women, children aged zero to three years, children aged three to six years and children aged 6-18 years can be obtained.
