India announces cash incentive to save girl child

India has announced a conditional cash transfer scheme ‘Dhan Laxmi’ to provide a set of staggered financial incentives for families to encourage them for better upbringing of girl child and to educate her.

New Delhi: The Government of India on Monday launched a conditional cash transfer scheme ‘Dhan Laxmi' to provide a set of staggered financial incentives for families to encourage them for better upbringing of girl child and to educate her.

Under the scheme, a significant amount will be provided to the family of girl child on fulfilling specific conditionalities including birth registration, immunisation, school enrolement and delay marriage of the girl child till the age of 18 years.

The Minister also launched online tracking of proposals submitted to the Ministry under various schemes for grant in aid in collaboration with National Informatics Centre (NIC).

Under the Dhan Laxmi scheme an insurance cover to the tune of Rs 1 lakh would be provided for the girl child at her birth and in all, cash package of around Rs 2 lakh will be provided to the girl's family, preferably to the mother, through the scheme.

Courtesy: UNICEF/HQ03-0011/Shehzad NooraniWhile launching the scheme, the Minister for Women and Child Development Renuka Chowdhury said that the scheme would help to change the attitudinal mindset of the family towards the girl by linking cash and non-cash transfers to her well-being.

The Minister added that this will force the families to look upon the girl as an asset rather than a liability since her very existence would lead to cash inflow to the family.

"Initially, the scheme is proposed to be piloted in 11 educationally backward blocks in seven states. An outlay of Rs 10 crore is proposed for 2008-09 benefiting 101,970 girl children," she said.

Chowdhury also launched a public awareness campaign about women issues through Railway tickets, under which, initially five crore tickets will be printed carrying social messages to check female foeticide, child marriage, dowry, domestic violence, trafficking and harassment.

Stressing that through the tickets the messages will go up to the grassroot level, she also announced skill upgradation programme for women especially destitutes in private partnership under the programme about 100 women will be provided training in different trades and their employment will be facilitated.

Chowdhury further said that these schemes include working women's hostel scheme, Swadhar, Ujjawala, short stay homes, crèche and child welfare.

Respected Madam/Sir,

Very good step save girl child for Dehli Government.

Thanking you,

With warm regards,

Ajit Anand

Dhan Lakshmi Yogana by the Government is certaily a very good step in saving the girl child, but limiting the incentives to a particular segment of society is not a very sane decision, since more deaths of the girl fetus take place in upper society.

Ladali Yojana, one of the milestone of Indian History, for future and also one of the best scheme for Girl child, this scheme definitly best for India's Growth Story, I think Govt. should more concentrates on this scheme, because this scheme also help Humanities, because no body concentrates on Girl child. According to this approach India can achieve Best Place on the series of developed country.

Lots of thanks Again...........

The New Scheme will definitely help the Girl children to have a longer and safe Life.The People will change thier mindsets and give high value to the Girl child.Now they consider it as a Boon to have a girl child rather than a curse or a burden to have a girl child.The scheme will improve the living Conditions of the Girl child and promote integrated development and survival.The scheme should immediately implement in the pockets of the country where the sex ratio of women is very low.Thanks to the Honble union Minister Smt.Renuka Chowdary for launching the scheme.

Schemes....Schemes....and more schemes...what we would like to know is the effectiveness of the implementation . While the announcement of this scheme is made with all the pompousness and fanfare, the results including details of implementation and their effectiveness are almost always forgotten / never spoken aboout !! Could we have some details about these on this website at some time (anytime !!) in future Mrs. Choudhary ? !!

It's really a good step to save girl child.

This is one of the best things to have been done for the improvement and developement of girl child and that too through the mother of the girl child which is an excellent idea.This will certainly help in impowerement of the women in the long run.Congrats !!!!

Good positive step from the government to save the 'endangered species'. Now the families won't feel burdened with the monetary aspects as soon her sex is revealed by the midwife/nurse. One's feeling is that people tend to dislike a girl baby concerned more with the financial aspects in the prevailing social environment than anything else. Years of subjugation has also made girl child or women reluctant to use her inherent confident self. May every thing changes with these measures.

Dear Sir,

Like vaidehi, even I would like to know how a girl child can access these schemes. I am a volunteer in an organisation called sikh missionary college, we help sikligars who marry their girls at an early age. with this scheme coming in we can convince them for a delayed marriage & proper education etc.

We would like to use your schemes and help them to empower themselves.

I would be grateful, if you could suggest the ways in which we can approach the Govenment for grants.

Thanks ,

Jasbir Singh

this is very essential. but it should be spent through proper channel.

Dear Sir,

Hi,
Its wonderful scheme to save the girl child &secure her future.... lot more to be done......keep going....

Its good to provide an incentive to a girl child. It gives confidence for he survival. Incentives alone will not be sufficent to save the girl child. Behavioural and attitudinal change is much more important. High priority should put on the states where the female ratio is vey low i.e Punjob and haryana. Village level Committees may be encouraged, empowered on these issues and put responsbility to take of their girl child in their viilage. Monitoring follow up will be easier. Sarpanches, ward members should be held responsble in their respective wards and villages if any issue taken up on girl child after creating the awarenss among the PR members

wonderfull
it will reduce the population. see the population any where wherever the women to men ratio is more than one population had been reduce. but look china or India ratio of men to women is around 1000 men and 900women.
second thing will be improved will be our stock ofpeople healthy mother healthy family and off springs.
wow wow well done.
with well wishes for the success of schemes.
