In reality, Ladli Laxmi Yojana is a flagship initiative launched by the Government of Madhya Pradesh in 2007, aimed at shifting societal perceptions surrounding the birth of girl children and enhancing their welfare. Originating in Madhya Pradesh, the scheme’s success prompted its adoption by several other states including Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Goa, and Jharkhand.

Key Features of Ladli Laxmi Yojana:

  1. Financial Assistance: Girls enrolled in the scheme receive financial aid for educational expenses, incentivizing families to prioritize their daughters’ education.
  2. Marriage Fund: Upon reaching marriageable age, the government provides Rs. 1 Lakh to the family of the beneficiary to support her marriage.
  3. Conditional Benefits: Certain conditions such as marrying after the age of 18 and staying enrolled in education until class XII are prerequisites for availing the scheme’s benefits.

Eligibility Criteria:

To qualify for Ladli Laxmi Yojana, the girl child must be born on or after January 1, 2006, and registered at a local Anganwadi center. Additionally, the family must not be paying any taxes to the government, and the application must be submitted within one year of the child’s birth.

Furthermore, the scheme extends support to orphaned girls upon adoption, provided the necessary documentation is furnished by the adopting family.
