Warning against spurious schemes being floated in the name of Beti Bachao Beti Padhao
Beti Bachao Beti Padhao scheme focuses on challenging mindsets and deep rooted patriarchy in the societal system
Government of India that Certain unauthorised sites/organisations/NGOs/individuals are distributing forms in the name of cash incentive under Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Scheme-warns the Ministry of Women & Child Development. The scheme has no provision for individual cash transfer component by Government of India. Beti Bachao Beti Padhao scheme focuses on challenging mindsets and deep rooted patriarchy in the societal system, strict enforcement of PC&PNDT Act, advancing education of the girl child: focus is on issues of women empowerment on a life cycle continuum. It is not a DBT (Direct Benefit Transfer) scheme.
“It is a very serious matter and if any such incidence comes to your knowledge, please report it to the nearest police station and the concerned District Collector/ District Magistrate. Please do not fall in trap to any such fraud. Do not share your personal details in this regard. FIRs have already been filed by District Magistrates of Meerut & Muzzafarnagar (UP State) in the matter. The matter has come to notice in Lucknow as well. The Ministry of Women and Child Development had cautioned the media and public about this through their Press Release dated 4.1.2017. However, certain reports of unscrupulous elements still indulging in this fraud. Once again it is reiterated that distribution of such forms is completely illegal and there is no cash incentive associated in any form with the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Scheme,” the government said in a statement.
