ChRIS is an E-Governance program to identify, register, count and monitor every marriage, pregnancy, child birth taking place in Jabalpur division. It is an effort to transform and institutionalize the existing manual system to a technology based on-line automatic system. The system so developed endeavors to bring all marriages, pregnancies, deliveries, ante & post natal care, inoculations, proper growth & elementary education of the child in the ambit of public domain by posting the relevant information of each districts on the website.
Although there is huge man power and a number of devoted agencies catering to the “health and nutrition needs” of the marginalized people, in the absence of proper data base and information strict monitoring on developmental parameters becomes a complimented issue and the sufferer is general populace. In order to address these lacunae, a system by the name of ChRIS is developed. System makes available the entire information about target populace and delivery of schemes on a real time basis in public domain.
The pilot implementation of the project is started from Narayanganj and Cheechali blocks of Mandla and Narsinghpur Districts. On its successful implementation, the project has been extended all over Jabalpur division. All marriages, pregnancies & births registered on or after 1 November 2006 are taken in to consideration in this system. The project targets to cover all children up to 5
years in the region, so that no child will be left after 5 years of its implementation.
The project the pioneer in this area will facilitate discouraging cases of child marriage, increasing institutional deliveries, decreasing the cases of female feticide, identifying beneficiaries for various government schemes like Ladli Lakshmi, Janani Kalyan, Deendayal, BalShakti etc. in this sector, reducing the risks at the time of birth, providing nutritional supplements to needy mothers and children, timely delivery of health services, and monitoring the growth of every child from 0-5 years. It also provides real time information on critical parameters such as IMR, MMR, etc. The system generates calendar for mandatory checkups & vaccination for each pregnant woman and Immunization calendar for child upto 5 years keeping in record details of the birth as well tracing child’s growth from 0 to 5 years. Integration of the schemes of various departments, viz., Social Welfare, Women & Child Development, Health & Family Welfare, and Elementary Education has taken place through ChRIS.
