India is considered a developing country, but why not developed? One of the factors pulling us back is gender diversity. To remove the difference in the ratio, our government is working hard to introduce schemes that promote the birth of female children. What was a dire situation once is now getting better with the launch of programs like Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao, scholarships for girls, and monetary help for them too? The Ladli Laxmi Yojna is such a scheme.


About Ladli Laxmi Yojna

Ladli Laxmi Yojana

Ladli Laxmi Yojna is a program launched by the government of Madhya Pradesh that is for the benefit of female children. Since its inception on 1st April 2007, the scheme has proven beneficial to thousands of girls. The success of this scheme is exemplified by the fact that it has been accepted in several other states too. While a girl child is still considered a burden in several households, this scheme will change that perspective. This scheme provides monetary help to parents of a girl child. 

According to this scheme, the girl child will receive Rs 6000 every year for five years from the day of birth/registration. That means a total of Rs 30000 will be given to the baby girl. When the child enters the 6th standard, she will be awarded Rs 2000 and in 9th standard Rs 4000. For the 11th standard, the girl student will be eligible to receive Rs 7500 for her education. When the girl is 21, she will receive Rs 1 Lakh from the government. 


Who can Benefit from this Yojna?

There is a criterion that the person availing this monetary help should clear. 

  1. Anyone whose parents are domicile of Madhya Pradesh.
  2. The money is only provided if the girl child was not married before the age of 18.
  3. If a child leaves her education midway, then she will not receive this grant.
  4. Only two girl children can benefit from this scheme, although if someone has two twin girls and another girl child, then three of them will receive the grant.
  5. Only the citizens below the poverty line can apply for this scheme. 


Benefits of Ladli Laxmi Yojna

India is a country standing at the 129 ranks in the Human Development Index. The reasons for this low ranking are many, but a prominent one is gender ratio. India has a large male to female ratio. The gender diversity and gender pay gap contribute primarily to our low ranking. That is why the need for such schemes occurs. 

A scheme like Ladli Laxmi Yojna will benefit the gender ratio of India as parents will not consider the female child to be a burden. The monetary help given to the child will nurture her education, and one day she might be able to support her parents as well. 

The scheme also helps poverty-stricken households. When a human has to choose between food and education, food is a survival necessity. This scheme will lessen the worries of parents who want to educate their children. The independence attained after education by a female child will add to the development of our country,
