In the Modern growing India still there has been negative thinking about having a girl child. We hear about the cases such as female feticide, dowry death, no proper education for a girl child, etc. Due to this, there is a significant difference in the girls and boys’ ratio in the country. From time to time government keeps on trying to provide beneficial schemes for the girls and women of the nation. The Haryana Government has started the Haryana Aapki Beti Humari Beti Yojana 2021 to give Haryana daughters education benefits.
The Haryana government launches many schemes from time to time for the education of daughters. Aapki Beti Humari Beti Yojana has been launched for daughters of Haryana. Under this scheme, all Haryana girls who are born on or after 22 January 2015 will be provided financial assistance of ₹ 21000.
The financial assistance will be provided to them on completion of 18 years of age. Apart from this, if another daughter is also born in the family, she will be provided financial assistance of ₹ 5000 for five years. This scheme aims to reduce the ratio between boys and girls and prevent crimes like female feticide.
Aapki Beti Humari Beti Yojana’s main objective is to equalize the number of girls in the states compared to boys. At present, the number of girls in Haryana is much less than boys. The government will reduce this ratio through this scheme. Negative thinking about girls will also change through this scheme. All those people who used to consider girls as a burden, murdered in the womb itself. Their thinking will also change. The financial assistance provided by the government can be used for girls’ education.
Under Haryana Aapki Beti Humari Beti Yojana, financial assistance of ₹ 21000 on the birth of a daughter is provided by the Government of Haryana. An amount of ₹ 21000 is not provided under this scheme on the birth of a daughter.
