The Karnataka migrant tracking and social protection framework is designed to enable the Government of Karnataka to track the needs of the most vulnerable populations across the state of Karnataka. Migrants and citizens from all gram panchayats shall be surveyed every year to record their food, health and livelihood needs. The surveys shall be carried out by Government officials such as Panchayat Development officials and NGOs working at the panchayat and Taluk level. The needs of the people are sent to the corresponding department in real time for officials to react as fast and as efficiently as possible. As the system gives the location of the Gram Panchayat it is made easy for officials to locate the persons in need. This is a unique closed loop system customized for the Government of Karnataka by the Centre for Development Studies and Activities (CDSA), Pune with support from the UNICEF Hyderabad Field Office.
