UPASTHITI is an SMS based online reporting and real time monitoring system overcoming the problem of remoteness. The sole idea is to have the activities of all the schools at our fingertips. At the inception we are monitoring the attendance of students and teachers as well as school's opening time by a simple SMS. The head master sends the message in required format within required format. The data base stores and analyze the data, and sends alerts to the higher authorities as shown in the flowchart. For example if a school's data is not received the Jan Shikshak gets the alert and if a school repeats that, authority next in the hierarchy gets the message. Above all at the top, Collector,CEO and DEO get to see the information through internet.
The Web & SMS based UPASTHITI Application has been developed to track the multiple information related to School at the ground level. Schools located at rural area, having no broadband connectivity so the reporting, monitoring & information retrieval is the challenging task and on-paper/manual reporting and information retrieval taking so much time. “UPASTHITI Application” is the best solution for instant reporting system because now days everyone having the Mobile Phones and the mobile network is also available at rural area. So we have planned for the SMS based reporting system for the instant reporting.
The government programmes like Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan(SSA), Rastriya Madyamik Shiksha Abhiyan(RMSA) have definitely increased the enrolment ratio in the schools. But they are not successful in retaining students and improving the presence of teachers. As it is not possible to monitor every school directly, we thought of an online application based on mobile networks. As in these days mobile network penetration is very deep, the data gathering and information dissemination through mobiles works easily and effectively.
I) This application is running successfully .In the first phase of the campaign, we are getting Headmasters to send messages about school opening time, teacher and student presence, delivery of midday meal and distribution of scholarship, cycles, uniforms and books.
II) Data will be received through SMSs from HMs everyday and Collector, CEO-Zila Panchayat.
III) Random inspections will be conducted to ensure credibility of information received with strict action dispensed in instances of misreporting.
IV) The people pressures of social accountability mixed with administrative attention will gradually drive the system towards self-correction.
V) User can search information by different parameters like date wise, department wise, school wise, user wise etc. More parameters can be add as per requirement.
VI) Track the multiple information related to School at the ground level.
