Secretary, Ministry of Women and Child Development (MWCD), Rakesh Srivastava, launched today the Phase -1 of the online module of the Rapid Reporting System (RRS) for the Scheme for Adolescent Girls.

The RRS will facilitate the monitoring of the scheme and taking corrective measures by ensuring faster flow of information, accurate targeting of the beneficiaries and reduction of leakages.

This portal has been developed in collaboration with National Informatics Centre (NIC).

Last year, the government had realized the multi-dimensional needs of out-of-school adolescent girls (11-14 years) and aimed to motivate these girls to join school system with the continuation of the Scheme for Adolescent Girls (SAG).

The scheme aims at providing them nutritional support @ Rs. 9.50 / beneficiary / day for 300 days in a year, motivating out-of-school girls to go back to formal schooling or skill training under non-nutrition component of the scheme.

Government has also approved expansion and universalisation of SAG in a phased manner – in additional 303 districts in 2017-18 and the remaining districts in 2018-19 with the simultaneous phasing out of Kishori Shakti Yojana.

Presently, MWCD is implementing the scheme in selected 508 districts across the country.
