Mangaluru: the State government will shortly introduce biometric attendance system in anganwadis to ensure that the personnel work from 9 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. said Minister for Women and Child Welfare Jaimala at a meeting to review Women and Child Welfare programmes here on Tuesday July 24th.  

Anganwadi teachers need to concentrate on the well-being of children coming to the centres. These teachers have the onerous responsibility of moulding young children. “These teachers can be used for immunisation and other activities of the department. They cannot be used for any other work,” observed Ms. Jaimala.

The Minister said that the government will bring in transparency in the working of anganwadis along with biometric. In this way information will be ascertained on how many children and women have food in anganwadis, she said.

Responding to the minister and MLC Ivan D’souza’s concern over the death of 10 of the 131 orphan children in the only adoption centre in Dakshina Kannada, Srirama Sevasharama at Puttur, the Child Protection Officer Usman said that the 10 children were found abandoned in bushy areas and waste bins and could not be saved despite treatment at the Government Hospital in Puttur.

The proposal to open another adoption centre in Mangaluru, which was pending for over two months, will be looked into assured Ms. Jaimala.
