The award was conferred by the Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh at a function on the occasion of Civil Service Day, on dt.21.04.08.

The CTS has been developed to track the educational and socio economic status of around 1.2 crore children between 0 to 14 years of age group in Odisha and to provide them right & free elementary education. It was conceived during 2005, where through Odisha Child Census-2005 the information was collected from door-to-door survey and regularly updated in subsequent years. It not only identifies the children but also helps the organization to provide the real benefit in terms of Schooling facilities to them. Being a part of Project e-Sishu of OPEPA, it gives focus towards Universalisation of Elementary Education (UEE) in Odisha. Each child has been provided with unique child code to track their status.
  The system was put into practice with the support of Odisha Computer Application Center (OCAC), the IT Directorate through it’s software partner M/s CSM Technology, Bhubaneswar and managed by the Management Information System (MIS) unit of OPEPA.
