The Ministry of Women
and Child Development has recently proposed to the State Governments/
Union Territory Administrations on 03.05.2012 to display the list of
women and children beneficiaries in every Anganwadi Centre (AWC) in the
office of the Panchayat and in front of AWC at regular intervals to
check pilferage and ensuring that supplementary nutrition reaches to the
right beneficiary. In addition, giving of publicity in newspapers to the
effect that such a list has been displayed in Panchayats and Anganwadis
has also been advised.
The State Governments and UT Administrations have also been directed to
devise a web based system by which the dispatch and delivery of
supplementary nutrition (SNP) could be uploaded by the manufacturers on
the website of the State WCD indicating the movement of SNP to various
AWCs from the manufacturers to the delivery points and the dates on
which these have been delivered so that utilization could be tracked by
the Department of WCD of State Governments. None of the State
Governments/ UT Administrations has so far expressed difficulty in
implementing the above proposals.
This was stated by Smt. Krishna Tirath, Minister for Women and Child
Development, in a written reply to the Lok Sabha today.
