District Adminstration, Dhanbad


The “SMS Based Online Monitoring System for Mid-Day Meal” project has to a great extent reduced the teacher absenteeism and pilferage from mid-day meal  resulting in a more transparent system. The system randomly selects 5 schools and sends SMS to school inspector on a daily basis who submits the report via SMS only. The attendance of teachers and students has improved substantially. The project has no cost overrun and this model is also being implemented in other districts of Jharkhand. An innovative project, this shows how the zeal of administrators could transform good ideas into constructive outcome.
