Schools Safety MIS ( is a web application supplemented by Schools Safety mobile app available on both Android and iOS to facilitate the various schools throughout the state, in preparing the Disaster Management Plan (DMP). UDISE code already allocated to the schools is used as User ID for logging into the web application as well as mobile app. The DMP is prepared by the schools and the State, District and Block level authorities can monitor the progress of preparation of DMP and disaster preparedness by various schools under their jurisdiction. This software helps in monitoring of disaster preparedness of various schools, by the higher authorities.
