Introduction & Objective

Introduction Animal wealth in India has increased manifold. Animal husbandry practices have changed to a great extent following the introduction of newer technologies particularly for crossbreeding and up gradation of indigenous breeds. With the liberalization of trade after the advent of WTO’s Sanitary & Phyto-Sanitary (SPS) agreement, the chances of exotic diseases in the country have increased. For ensuring the maintenance of disease free status and to be compatible with the standards laid by the Office International des Epizooties (OIE) - World Animal Health Organization, major health schemes have been initiated to support the animal health programmes in the states. National Animal Disease Reporting System (NADRS) is one of the new components to be implemented in the 11th Five Year Plan.

Objectives NADRS Project has been envisioned to put in place a system that will help to monitor livestock health across the country and would be an engine to help decision support. The following are the objectives of the system:

  • Provide instant alerts to all concerned about Animal Disease Outbreaks, Remedial measures, etc.
  • Disseminate information related to Animal diseases to all stakeholders in a timely & efficient manner.
  • Prevent revenue losses by predictive analysis by using an integrated Management Information System for better decision support
  • To systemize the existing record keeping procedure.
  • To improve the quality of the information system generated by district level offices.


National Animal Disease Reporting System The NADRS has created an ICT infrastructure and established computerized network, linking each Block, District and State Headquarters (~7000 project sites) to the Central Disease Reporting & Monitoring Unit (CDRMU) to record and monitor livestock disease situation in the country with a view to enable preventive and curative action in a timely and speedy manner. The whole disease reporting system works in tandem with both central and state government for updating the diseases and maintaining the database for information sharing across the states and union territories and eventually DADF notifies World Animal Health Organization (OIE), other international organizations and other departments in the government.

National Animal Disease Reporting System has seven modules to cater to the needs of each and every stake holders

1.Animal Disease Reporting System (Web based BI and CRM System)
  • Disease Reporting and Monitoring to Centralized system through SMS, e-mail, IVRS, web based interface
  • Disease Profile (Disease type, OIE code of the disease, Name of the disease, Animals likely to be affected, symptoms, Prevention,control measures to be taken, Climatic conditions for occurance of disease, Photographs)
  • Disease forecasting & actual outbreaks
  • Experts Advice - Upload & View
  • Veterinary Centres Profiles
  • Medicines (Registered, Banned)
  • Registered Veterinary Practitioners (Veterinary Council of India)
  • Diagnostic Laboratory Details (In-charge, contact details, Address and Location on maps, Facilities available, Tests being conducted)
  • MIS Reports
  • Dashboards and Drill down reports
  • Livestock 360 degree view for collaboration and case management

2. Centralized Scheme Monitoring System
  • Capture Scheme details
  • Fund allocation
  • Fund utilization
  • Beneficiaries details
  • Physical Progress Monitoring
  • Financial Progress Monitoring
  • MIS Reports

3.Analytical Report - Web based Business Intelligence

With access to timely information and analysis, NADRS officials can use CRM tools to identify trends, evaluate farmers’ interactions with departments and agencies, and create strategies to enhance service and—at the same time—reduce costs.

  • Captures and trackdata to respond quickly to changing constituent needs andlegislative requirements.
  • Performs critical trend analysis based on information.
  • Gives administrators a graphical view of organizational performance—from their desktops or mobile devices—with the ability to drill deeply into details.

4. Centralized NADRS Database
5. GIS based Decision Support System(DSS)
6. Event Management
