Child Traking System

The Ministry of Women and Child Development is implementing a Centrally Sponsored Scheme, namely the Integrated Child Protection Scheme (ICPS) since 2009-10. The objectives of the scheme are to contribute to the improvement in the well being of children in difficult circumstances, as well as to the reduction of vulnerabilities to situations and actions that lead to abuse, neglect, exploitation, abandonment and separation of children. The Scheme, also envisages for creating a mechanism for tracking 'missing' and 'found' children under ICPS and Juvenile Justice (Care & Protection of Children) Act,2000 ( JJ Act). Therefore, this Ministry had entrusted National Informatics Centre (NIC) to develop a national portal TrackChild which not only have data on 'missing' children but it also have live database to monitor the progress of the 'found' children who are availing various services in different Child Care Institutions (CCIs) under the ICPS and the JJ Act.

TrackChild portal has been designed and developed adhering to the guidelines provided in the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000 and Model Rules 2007 and the provisions laid down in the Integrated Child Protection Scheme (ICPS). One of the tasks entrusted under ICPS to the State Governments is the setting up of a child tracking system which will facilitate data entry and matching of missing and found children, and also enable follow up of the progress of children who are beneficiaries of the Scheme. Thus, proper monitoring and welfare of the children under the Scheme would also be ensured through the portal. The Homes, Child Welfare Committees are being equipped with computers, staff etc. to facilitate data entry of the children under ICPS.

TrackChild portal provides an integrated virtual space for all stakeholders & ICPS bodies which includes Central Project Support Unit (CPSU), State Child Protection Society/Units and District Child Protection Units (DCPU), Child Care Institutions (CCIs), Police Stations, Child Welfare Committees (CWCs), Juvenile Justice Boards (JJBs), etc. in the 35 State/UTs. It also provides a networking system amongst all the stakeholders and citizens to facilitate tracking of a "Child in distress". It requires data entry and updating at various levels such as Police stations, Child Care Institutions (CCIs)/Homes, Shelters, Child Welfare Committees, and Juvenile Justice Boards etc.

The Software also provides facilities for mapping of vulnerable locations, i.e. those which have a large number of children reported missing, so that corrective action can be taken in these areas. Monitoring by senior officers of the action being taken by the Police to trace the missing children has also been streamlined through the software.

The Ministry of Women and Child development have been closely working with all the stake holders working in the area of child protection in the country and have organised various meetings/consultations specially with the State governments, Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), State Department of Home (Police), National Institute of Public Cooperation And Child Development (NIPCCD), Central Adoption Resource Agency (CARA), Zonal Integrated Police Network (ZIPNET) of Delhi Police and Childline India Foundation etc. Two National Conferences were also organised, on 30.10.2012 and 12.12.2013, to sensitize the high level Officers of States' department of WCDs, Police personnel and other stakeholders.

So far, MWCD with the assistance of National Informatics Centre (NIC) have completed training on the use of TrackChild software for Police officials and ICPS functionaries in 35 States/UTs. Need based trainings are conducted as per requests received from States. NIC has also designated its nodal officers to provide technical help to 35 States/UTs. TrackChild nodal officers have also been appointed by departments of WCD by States/UTs.

NICNET Based Agricultural Marketing Information System Network (AGMARKNET)

Agricultural Marketing is an area for the "second generation" of green revolution problems. Indian Marketing is undergoing a significant metamorphosis because of economic liberalization and globalisation. Infrastructure development is the critical factor for determining the success of market-oriented strategy and macro-economic policies in developing countries. Both national and global players are trying to capture the urban markets of India, which has already reached a saturation level, and it is extremely difficult to tap the urban markets with high profit margin. In export market, a firm has to face challenges from Multi-National Corporates (MNCs), other foreign companies and domestic firms of the concerned export markets. While urban market or export market is difficult to plough, rural market is relatively easy and feasible to cultivate, in India.

Market information is an important aspect of Agricultural Marketing. The importance of sound agricultural marketing policies for ensuring fair returns to the farmers can hardly be over-emphasized. It, therefore, becomes necessary on the part of regulatory agencies to ensure remunerative prices to the farmers for the sale of their produce, to boost up their efforts for increasing and sustaining the agricultural production. A number of measures have been taken by the Government to protect and safeguard the interests of farmers, like regulation of markets, grading of agricultural produce, cooperative marketing etc. Still the benefits are not percolating down to the farmers, as they are unable to plan their strategies for sale of their produce at remunerative prices, in the absence of correct and timely market information and advice about arrivals, prices, market trend, etc.

Almost all the States and Union Territories are providing market information in one form or the other for the benefits of market users like producers, traders and consumers. However, the information is collected and disseminated by use of conventional methods which cause inordinate delay in communicating the information to different target groups, and thus adversely affecting their economic interest. Therefore, there is an urgent need to bring improvement in the present market information system by linking (i) all Agricultural Produce Wholesale markets in the States and Union Territories, and (ii) the State Agricultural Marketing Boards and State Directorates of Agricultural Marketing, with the Directorate of Marketing & Inspection of the Ministry of Agriculture, for effective and efficient information exchange. In view of this importance, the Department of Agriculture & Cooperation, in the Union Ministry of Agriculture has sanctioned a Central Sector Scheme "NICNET Based Agricultural Marketing Information Network (AGMARK-NET)", Project Cost estimate of about Rs.10.00 Crores, to link 810 nodes (735 agricultural markets and 75 State Marketing Boards/DMI offices) to begin with, through its attached office, Directorate of Marketing and Inspection (DMI), during the year 2000-02. During the X five year plan, further expansion to 2000 additional markets, Regional Portals and GIS based National atlas of Markets has also been approved . The Scheme is being implemented during the XI Plan period by enhancing its scope to cover 500 additional markets including remaining principal regulated markets, if any, farmer/consumer markets, private markets, panchayat markets, urban markets and special commodity markets.
