Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign in India with an objective of improving the condition of the girl child in the country and promoting the whole concept of saving and educating girl children just as male children. After this and as a part of this campaign as well a lot of state government leaders have come up with schemes and projects to save and educate and also protect girl children.

What will be done as a part of this scheme?
Under this scheme the government of Rajasthan will be providing financial support to the girl children and their families for the purpose of the child’s education. The reason behind providing this financial support to the parents of the girl child is that there are many families who deprive their daughters from going to school or to pursue higher education. There are a lot of drop outs in school where the girl children are concerned and this is a major problem.
Under this the families who do not send their daughters to school due to financial reasons will be provided financial help so the these children get their basic right to education.
As a part of this scheme the girl students will be given grants and scholarships in schools so that the financial burden of their parents decrease and they are not forced to leave school. The main focus would also be to make girls and women independent that would come with education so that the whole concept of considering girls as burdens will go off the mind. The concept of female education will be promoted under this scheme.
The budget allotted for this scheme is Rs.99.693 crore. All the female children born after the 1st of June 2016 will be considered eligible for this scheme. The implementation of the scheme will be taken care by the Department of Women and Child Affairs of the government of Rajasthan.
Reason behind the launch
- One has to understand that Rajasthan is still a place that is not that modern and still believes that women are not equal to men. The education condition too is very bad in this state and women here are mostly not educated.
- Most of the girl children are not sent to school and even if they are they are enrolled out of the school at any moment. Such condition is highly seen in the poor families of Rajasthan.
- It is felt that families here feel that men and boy children are supposed to go to school and then work and the girls are supposed to learn the household chores and then get married. Mot girls in the state have not even completed their elementary education.
- Going by reports Rajasthan is the last Indian state in terms of female literacy and this kind of justifies the need of a scheme such as the Mukhya Mantri Rajshree Yojana.
It is expected that this scheme would be of benefit to the society and would help families realize the importance of education not just for males but also for females. It will also act as a support system for all those girls and women who are deprived of their basic right of education just because of their gender.
As the nation fights hard to implement the gender based equality, the introduction of this MukhyaMantri Rajshree Yojana in the state of Rajasthan was highly welcomed by many socialists across the nation, as it gives importance to the girl’s rights.
