PICME – Children are the future of all nations. It is therefore important that the government pays little attention to the national interest. The Pregnancy and Child Cohort Monitoring and Measurement Plan is an initiative launched by the Government of Tamil Nadu. This course, better known as PICME, is designed for pregnant women and infants.
Pregnancy is a critical period in a woman’s life. Maternal mortality rates in India have fallen over the past decade, but are still not zero. Some of the most common causes of maternal or child death are malnutrition, poor lifestyle and inadequate care. PICME is an initiative of the government of Tamil Nadu to screen pregnant women in the state. All pregnant women must register with PICME and provide a PICME number.
Importance of PICME Numbers – Overview
The Child and Early Childhood Medicine (RCH) program requires women to register with PICME as soon as they find out they are pregnant. Once registration is complete and the PICME is received, pregnant women who register will immediately receive an RCH ID. After receiving the RCH ID, these women entered various positions according to the RCH position.
Convenience in Pregnancy:
Once a woman has registered with PICME, the local nurse will begin monitoring her and providing special care during pregnancy. In addition to this, these nurses help pregnant women to upload all the necessary information into the software so that they can get all the services they need from the state. Nurses will also guide women through the steps they need to take to get the care they need from the government.
The Government of Tamil Nadu will provide financial support of Rs. PICME and Dr. 18,000 for all pregnant women enrolled in the Muthulakshmi Reddy Maternity Benefit Plan. This is done several times.
- The first installment of KRW 1,000,000 and 2,000 is paid 12 weeks before pregnancy if registered on time.
- The second section is again Rs. It is 2000 and paid on the 3rd month.
- The third installment is paid after 4 months, but G.O.
- The fourth installment of 1 million wins and 2000 will be redone after 4 months. The fifth installment is 100 million wins. 4000 and will be completed after delivery. This payment is only payable if the shipment is from a public hospital in Tamil Nadu.
- The next bonus is again 100 million won. 4000, paid after receiving the OPA/ROTA/PENTA vaccine with 2 doses of IPV.
- Finally, the end of Rs 2000 is paid after the last measles-rubella vaccine, compulsory before 12 months of infancy.
Women registered with PICME can still benefit after giving birth. Often, obtaining a birth certificate can be very difficult. Women who receive an RCH number through PICME registration need not worry about this. They will get your baby’s best birth certificate without much hassle.
It is for these reasons that the government of Tamil Nadu has ordered married women to complete their PICME nominations as soon as possible. These women may benefit from having a second child.
