Mother and Child Tracking system (MCTS)

Mother and Child Tracking system (MCTS) is a name-based tracking of pregnant women so that adequate and timely feedback may be given to the health workers who may, in turn, ensure that pregnant women receive adequate Ante-natal and Post-natal care besides encouraging institutional deliveries. The system also aims to track the new-borns so that timely and complete immunisation may be ensured to them. MCTS has been implemented in all the States / UTs. It covers mothers from conception till 42 days after delivery. The infants are covered up to five years of age. Recently, MCTS has been included as Mission Mode Project under the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP). The total number of pregnant women registered under MCTS scheme recently crossed 1 crore mark.
