Here is a display of some of the latest news about Riddhi. We are pleased to see Riddhi achieving new heights day by day, but we are in a continuous process for further improvement.
449 rural and tribal ICDS projects of 33 rural districts of Maharashtra covering 89542 Anganwadi Centres (AWCs) are now visible in web with Geographic Information System (GIS) backbone. ICDS functionaries are using the system to monitor the performance of AWCs, BITs, Projects, Districts and Divisions for identifying the clusters of malnutrition, which need focused intervention. BIT and Project level Monthly Progress Reports (MPRs) are automatically generated by collating AWC level data.
A training program on “Maharashtra ICDS MIS-GIS” held at Paithan, a municipal council in Aurangabad district June 18th, 2012 onwards. During this training, ICDS project Supervisors and Extension Officers from all the districts of Maharashtra are trained to be the Master Trainers. Three Master Trainers from each district, in turn, shall train other project associates across their respective district. So far, the training has covered 33 out of 35 districts of Maharashtra.
