The Government of Uttar Pradesh by launching the UP Shadi Anudan Yojana scheme has understood the plight of the poor Indian families who are overburdened with the marriage expenses of their daughters. Considering the poor status of the Backward and poverty struck classes of Uttar Pradesh the Government has taken a great initiative to provide financial assistance to the parents of the daughters at the time of their marriage. This Yojana has also helped the parents of the daughters of Uttar Pradesh as they are often forced to sell their houses and lands due to scarcity of money and poor economic condition of their families. This scheme will also help in changing the outlook of the people and consider their daughters as an asset to their families rather than a burden to them. The UP Shadi Anudan Scheme has been a medium to uplift the status of the Indian daughters and is a leading example of women empowerment.
Thus, along with the Government, various organizations like the Aatmnirbhar Sena is also working in line with the Governmental schemes and trying to fulfill the targets of the UP Shadi Anudan Scheme by organizing various awareness campaigns for the deprived and uneducated sections of society and making them aware of the scheme. Therefore, the proper implementation of this scheme together with these organizations will help in reaching various poor sections of society and uplifting their standard of living.
