Uttar Pradesh government has launched a dedicated web portal and a mobile application, named as ‘e-Ganna’, for sugarcane farmers of the state. It was launched by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath at a function in Lucknow. Chief Minister also informed that during the last three years of his government, a record amount has been paid to farmers by sugar mills.
About web portal and e-Ganna App
The sugar mills will now issue the cane supply slip to farmers online. The step is to ensure that sugarcane farming becomes a profitable venture for farmers.
Both web and app will help in eradicating cane mafia and middleman and strengthen cane development societies. Moreover, besides ensuring transparency in the process of getting slips, the web and portal will also facilitate sugarcane supply by farmers to mills and check irregularities.
The app shows state government’s relentless commitment to pursue the goal set by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to double farmers’ income.

On the occasion of Children’s Day on 14 November 2019, the Assam State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (ASCPCR) launched a mobile app called ‘Sishu Suraksha’, an e-complaint box for child right violations. The ASCPCR decided to develop an e-complaint box, keeping in mind the mission of a Digital India.
About Sishu Suraksha App
Objective of App: To empower citizens to take moral responsibility of protecting future generations.
The name Sishu Suraksha means child protection in English. It will enable users from all over Assam to lodge complaints about violation of child rights, in swipe of their fingers.
The e-complaint box will run on android and iOS devices. The app can be used by anyone in the state to lodge a complaint which will be directly registered at Commission.
The app will ease the people as one of the major challenges is that most people are not aware of where to go and report a case of child rights violation.
Need: In monitoring visits to various districts in state, the Assam State Commision for Protection of Child Rights excercising the powers and functions mandated under the Commission for protection of Child Rights Act 2005 (CPCR Act, 2005) observed that the message of protection of rights of children is yet to reach the masses. ASPCR also reported that there has been a 55% increase in number of child trafficking cases in the state in 2019.
