In the same breath the minister said that a proper implementation of the newly introduced applications will fix accountability on the school administration but also help them perform their duties in a comprehensive manner. “The e-portal and the mobile applications will provide government information.

This is unique move initiated by the department, the minister said. The e-portal— www.banglarshiksha.gov.in is a robust platform providing dynamic dashboards, reports and data on real time basis — a centralised system with the capability of holding large volume data. This system will bring revolutionary change in e-governance by having the proficiency of bringing together various initiatives under one umbrella. The school education department will collect data from different schools under various programmes such as SSA, RMSA, MDM and HRSM through various portals. All the data will be collected and uploaded in the portal. Various information related to 1.5 crore students, 5 lakh teachers and 1 lakh schools will be available on the portal. The mobile applications are named as ‘Banglar Siksha mobile app’, ‘M-Paridarshan mobile app’, ‘Mid day meal inspection app’, ‘E-HRMS mobile app’ and ‘State data analysis management centre’. The M-Paridarshan mobile app will help the district inspectors of schools and other officials to record data while mid day meal inspection app will provide information relating to the mid day meal services in all the schools.
