The scheme is implemented in two phases and the first phase is in the final stage of completion and the second phase will commence within a period of 3 months.

            3rd Party Monitoring for CSS:

            In order to ensure that various schemes of CSS are implemented as it should be, 3rd Party Monitoring is undertaken by the department. This 3rd Party Monitoring and Evaluation not only provides quality implementation of the schemes, but also enabled the implementing department to take mid-term course correction in the implementation of the schemes. 3rd Party Evaluation undertaken under the department are as given below:

General Monitoring and Supervision of SSA and Mid-day Meal are currently done by Mizoram University. Site inspection and field visits are done on quarterly basis, feedback from this field visit provides vital feedbacks for mid-term course correction in the implementation of the schemes.
