The Odisha government, in the last couple of months, has been prioritising child healthcare with utmost gusto. The state government has launched a range of schemes for the welfare of new mothers and newborn babies, and one such scheme happens to be the Odisha e-Kalika scheme – a scheme which enables the state government to monitor, in real-time, the nursery performance and to track infrastructure in which newborns are kept and keep an eye on the health and nutrition of the child.

The scheme falls under the 5T initiative of the Ministry of Women and Child Development (WCD) and Mission Shakti.

About the Odisha e-Kalika scheme

With parents needing to report to work, especially those who work on daily wages, it becomes really difficult for such parents to look after the child. They feel torn between their duties as a worker and the emotional and nutritional needs of the child.

To solve this issue for workers, the Odisha government intends to mainstream Creches so as to eventually work towards curbing nutrition in Odisha, and this scheme comes in close collaboration between the Government of Odisha and Public Health Resource Society (PHRS) and the Azim Premji Philanthropic Initiatives (APPI).

The e-Kalika is actually a web-based system that is a real-time representation of youngsters and provides necessary evidence and data which can be used for planning and evaluating an outcome-driven program, monitoring activity and works towards the overall implementation of the scheme’s objectives.

Schemes launched by the state government

The state governments of India are the next important government bodies right after the central government of the country. The state governments constitute 28 states and 8 union territories

India is a democratic and republic country wherein highest authorities and powers are proffered to the central government. For the state government, real executive powers are given to Chief Minister as he is responsible for heading the Council of Ministers. The state governments of India work toward internal security, such as police department, social welfare, public health betterment and other similar state-related issues. The state government of the country earns its employee income from sales tax services, stamp duty services, and from some parts of GST.

The state governments have launched a variety of schemes so far. Some of the examples are as follows:

In Andhra Pradesh, Chandranna Bima Yojana, National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Program, and Smart Pulse Survey have been launched. In Assam, Mass Rapid Transit System has been recently launched. In Maharashtra, Police Pratisaad Ask services and various schemes for the betterment of farmers have been launched. In Karnataka, PM Santwana Harish Yojana, and Housing scheme for Transgenders have been launched. In Uttar Pradesh, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana, Hausla Paushan scheme, and Swadhar Greh yojana have been launched.

The state government of India monitors both rural and urban development. However, it is not feasible for the state government to monitor all rural and urban local government bodies. Thus, based on the provided funding and coverage, rural and urban local entities create development plan whenever required. These government entities work in close association with planning commission and local or regional government sectors and authorities.

Apart from these schemes, the state government also ensures the effective implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in respective states.
