1. Ministry of Women and Child Development (MoWCD), the Nodal Ministry, has been administering a number of women and child centric programs/schemes in the country. These schemes and programmes cover welfare and support services, training for employment and income generation, awareness creation and gender sensitization

2. Rationale
  • Under-nutrition continues to adversely affect majority of women in India. Every third woman is undernourished and every second woman is anemic. An undernourished mother almost inevitably gives birth to a low birth weight baby. When poor nutrition starts in-utero, it extends throughout the life cycle since the changes are largely irreversible.
  • ‘Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana’ (PMMVY), a Maternity Benefit Programme, is being implemented in all the districts of the country through the respective State Government/UT Administration as a Centrally Sponsored Scheme.
  • The scheme implementation is considered as a key intervention to augmenting nutritional requirements for Pregnant Women and Lactating Mothers (PW&LM). Considering the critical importance of this scheme in the overall context of nutrition supplementation, wage compensation and good health seeking behavior, this scheme is being monitored by the highest authority in the Government. Successful implementation of PMMVY is critical for the well-being of the nation.
  • In order to nurture successful implementation and ensure coverage of targeted beneficiaries, the scheme is being taken up on a ‘Mission Mode’ across the country. MoWCD along with the States/UTs has put in place requisite capacity for scheme implementation and operations, including mechanisms for constant improvements for its effective adoption.
  • A dedicated framework of Advisory Unit is envisaged to assist MoWCD in the scale up of PMMVY scheme and also in aligning and/or converging the scheme in the area of Direct Benefit Transfer over the long term.
  • MoWCD proposes to engage competent agencies to assist in the areas of programme & technology management, software and hardware services.
  • Through this Expression of Interest (EoI), MoWCD proposes to empanel reputed agencies fulfilling requisite eligibility criteria to act as an Advisory Unit. Amongst the empaneled agencies, MoWCD plans to select one agency, through a duly established process, for performing the activities as envisaged in this EOI.
  • The selected advisory agency shall steer and strengthen the PMMVY programme. The activities shall be provided through a small team of two (02) suitably qualified/experienced resources whose tasks would range from research / policy, program support and governance, oversight of solution development and service delivery, capacity building initiatives and communication interventions, etc.
  • The appointment of the agency shall be initially for a period of two years, which may be extended/ renewed through mutual consent and the same shall be at the sole discretion of MoWCD.
