An online ‘pehchaan’ for Youth Cong members
The Indian Youth Congress has developed a web-based networking portal named “Pehchaan”, on which its members can create their profiles, update their status, and can do live chat with other members of the organisation.
The platform, which is being used as an experiment by IYC office-bearers in Delhi, is all set to be made available in states where organisational elections have taken place.
What is Pehchaan ?
Pehchaan is a web-based system designed specifically for Youth Congress Office Bearers, Returning Officers and Master Coaches. It will enable you to:
1. Keep your official information updated
2. Share latest information about yourself and your constituency with the organisation
3. Showcase your political journey to leadership
4. Connect with Youth Congress workers from across the country
5. Seek appointments, download your own visiting card and letterhead, and many other things!
Why is Pehchaan important to you?
Pehchaan will allow you to get political recognition in a transparent, free and fair manner because :
1. It is directly available to you
2. It allows you to establish your political identity
3. Your profile and political inputs to the party are visible to leadership
4. It provides the organisation the means to recognise every individual in a systematic way
To get maximum benefit and the recognition you deserve, update your Pehchaan Patra
How do I get my Pehchaan Account ?
Pehchaan accounts are created and activated along with the office bearer training workshops that are conducted following an election in every state. Time is dedicated in this workshop to Pehchaan training. You will be given your login information during this session. So make sure you are present for your entire training!
Note: If you are from a state where office bearer training has already been completed or where training is yet to be scheduled, you can request your PYC President to contact Pehchaan National Coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org to plan how Pehchaan can be offered in your state.
For any additional assistance contact the Youth Congress Help Desk at email@example.com or call at 1860-425-4357.
How do I Login ?
Below is a screenshot of the Pehchaan Login Screen. Pehchaan is currently available in two languages – English & Hindi. It will be made available in other regional languages shortly. You can switch to the language of your choice by clicking on the list to the right side of the login screen.
Who is eligible for a Pehchaan account ?
Pehchaan is intended to be a universal system for anybody connected with the Youth Congress. Currently all Elected Office Bearers, Returning Officers and Master Coaches of the Youth Congress are eligible to get a Pehchaan account. Very soon, this service will be made available to all members as well.
Features of Pehchaan
Once you login to Pehchaan you see the Welcome Page. You can access various features of Pehchaan from here. These include services like Email, Calendar, Documents and Chat that you can use for your daily official work. Apart from these you can access the three main sections – My Pehchaan, My Tools and My Resources from the top right corner of the page.
This is the most important section of Pehchaan. It is a platform to showcase you own political journey and achievements. By filling out and regularly updating the various sections of your MY PEHCHAAN profile you can ensure that the organisation has all the information it needs about you and that none for your hard work goes unnoticed. The main sections are :
1. Personal Details & Contact information,
2. Political Performance,
3. Training Record
4. Record of Conduct
5. Political Intelligence
The features in this section are designed to allow you to connect with leadership and to enable you to share information with the organisation easily. You can also download personalised visiting cards, letterheads and Pehchaan Patra in official format in this section. The Pehchaan Patra is a very important document that clearly tells the organisation who you are.
In the future is will be mandatory to submit a copy of your Pehchaan Patra downloaded from MY TOOLS for any organisational activities like applying for a party ticket, making a representation to leadership, lodging a complaint or giving a suggestion.
Download training manuals, reporting templates, High-resolution images of the IYC logo and our leaders for your posters and banners, and more.
