Staff will be given the necessary training, says ITDA Project Officer

The Tribal Welfare Department has initiated the process of bringing e-governance to the centre stage of hostel administration and as a first step it is going to introduce e-Hostels from June 12, the beginning of the fresh academic year.

Announcing this at a meeting organised here on Tuesday, C. Nagarani, Project Officer of ITDA, Rampachodavaram, said e-Hostels is a web-based online system to effectively monitor the attendance of the students and the staff, prompt submission and payment of bills, maintenance of stock registers, implementation of the prescribed menu and other related tasks.

The proposed e-governance initiative would run on the lines of the online hostel monitoring system being successfully implemented by the Social Welfare Department in the State, she added. It would replace the existing manual attendance marking system and pave the way for online monitoring of the functioning of 91 ashram schools, including 12 tribal welfare hostels in the Agency.

Health status

Online tracking of the health status of students of the tribal welfare educational institutions would be another significant feature of the proposed e-initiative.

The data pertaining to the existing staff and students besides other relevant details of the tribal welfare educational institutions in the Agency had already been compiled, she said, adding that the entire data, including the details of the vendors and stock inventory, would be uploaded on the official website of the Tribal Welfare Department. Hostel wardens and headmasters concerned will be trained and issued user ID and passwords for implementation of the new e-initiative,” she said.
