Mumbai Inaugurates "Migration Monitoring System"

The nation's first "Migration Monitoring System," which instantaneously updates information on migrant expectant women, nursing moms, and toddlers on a single system was launched on Friday in Mumbai.

The system created by the Department of Women and Child Development was introduced by Mangal Prabhat Lodha, the Maharashtra Minister for Women and Child Development.

The website-based Migration Tracking System (MTS) would monitor vulnerable seasonal migrant beneficiaries using unique identification numbers. The first-of-its-kind technology will promptly provide seasonal migrant women's and children's data.

"This would make it simpler for recipients to enjoy the benefits of government schemes," Minister Lodha said. The technology also simplifies data entry for department employees, Anganwadi staff, and supervisors.

Principal Secretary I.A. Kundan stated that in November last year, this approach was used to enter beneficiary information in the web-based app in six districts: Chandrapur, Amravati, Jalna, Palghar, Nandurbar, and Gadchiroli. 

After examining the movement of women and children, Anganwadi staff and supervisors entered beneficiary information into the mobile app. Anganwadi services for migratory beneficiaries were attempted (destination). After researching these issues, the app was improved. This smartphone app will record state-wide migrant benefits. 

Rajmata Mission Program Officers Tiksha Sankhe, Shivani Prasad, and Digvijay Bendrikar Shinde created this method. The MahaMTS App is on Google Play, and the website is Department officials, Anganwadi employees, and supervisors may quickly fill out the information.

Additionally, it is possible to collect the native addresses of pregnant and nursing mothers whose children are under three, three to six, and six to eighteen years old.

In six districts in Maharashtra—Chandrapur, Amravati, Jalna, Palghar, Nandurbar, and Gadchiroli—the system was put into place as a test last November. It was used to complete the beneficiaries' information in the online application.

With the assistance of Anganwadi staff and supervisors, the information on the beneficiaries was entered into the mobile app after researching the process of women's and children's migration. Additionally, attempts were made to provide Anganwadi services to the local migrant population.

According to Minister Lodha, who spoke at the inauguration, the Department has developed a website called Migration Tracking System (MTS) to trace the movements of vulnerable seasonal migrant beneficiaries using personal unique identifying numbers. 

He says this way, information about mothers and children who move seasonally will be available immediately. He suggested that this would make it simpler for the recipients of government programs to get their payments. The MahaMTS app in the Google Play Store and the website are both ways to get to the system.
