Majhi Kanya Bhagyashree Scheme

Lately, not only the central Government, but also the State governments across the nation have taken an active step forward towards the betterment of the girl child. In an attempt to achieve the same, the Government of Maharashtra started the new scheme for the Girl child in April 2016. 

In light of recent schemes like the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, the Majhi Kanya Bhagyashree receives a warm welcome into a bunch of schemes that aims at the empowerment and growth of girls across the nation. 

The scheme was launched by Mr Devendra Fadnavis and is actively working towards the eradication of obstacles that hinder the growth of growing girls. 

Key features of the scheme: 

  1. The holistic development of the Girl child: This includes providing financial assistance to female candidates, as finances are one of the major reasons why girls miss out on opportunities in life. 
  2. Increasing the female education percentage: as we are aware, education is life-changing. The Majhi Kanya Bhagyashree scheme understands this very fact and aims to impart quality education to girls at really affordable prices. 
  3. Withdrawal of the money: Female infanticide has been an evil lurking the shadows of our nation for too long. In order to get rid of that, the withdrawal amount entitled to a girl child would only be available once the child has attained the legal age of 18 years. 
  4. Withdrawal of interest: Raising a child is not an easy task these days and hence if the parents of the girl child need monetary assistance for the same, they can withdraw the interest amount compounded over the years. This is only possible once the girl child attains legal age of 6-12 years. 

Parting thoughts: This is the era of rising women; women who run more than just a household. And in times like these is when we truly get to witness that “the hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world.

Schemes launched by the state government

The state governments of India are the next important government bodies right after the central government of the country. The state governments constitute 28 states and 8 union territories

India is a democratic and republic country wherein highest authorities and powers are proffered to the central government. For the state government, real executive powers are given to Chief Minister as he is responsible for heading the Council of Ministers. The state governments of India work toward internal security, such as police department, social welfare, public health betterment and other similar state-related issues. The state government of the country earns its employee income from sales tax services, stamp duty services, and from some parts of GST.

The state governments have launched a variety of schemes so far. Some of the examples are as follows:

In Andhra Pradesh, Chandranna Bima Yojana, National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Program, and Smart Pulse Survey have been launched. In Assam, Mass Rapid Transit System has been recently launched. In Maharashtra, Police Pratisaad Ask services and various schemes for the betterment of farmers have been launched. In Karnataka, PM Santwana Harish Yojana, and Housing scheme for Transgenders have been launched. In Uttar Pradesh, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana, Hausla Paushan scheme, and Swadhar Greh yojana have been launched.

The state government of India monitors both rural and urban development. However, it is not feasible for the state government to monitor all rural and urban local government bodies. Thus, based on the provided funding and coverage, rural and urban local entities create development plan whenever required. These government entities work in close association with planning commission and local or regional government sectors and authorities.

Apart from these schemes, the state government also ensures the effective implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in respective states.
