PM Pregnancy Aid Yojana Scheme 2017
PM Narendra Modi once again surprises his critics with new schemes. Recently our honorable PM Modi announced “Pregnancy Aid Scheme”. PM Narendra Modi is keenly working for the upliftment of poor. The government now needs to ensure poor people avail benefits from his schemes.
The pregnant aid scheme was announced on the occasion of the new year 2017. So all the pregnant women will avail benefits of Rs 6000 under this scheme. This scheme is basically for pregnant women in government hospitals and those who are below the poverty line. All pregnant women will get financial aid of Rs 6000 for medicines, food and nutritious diet and the amount will be deposited directly into their bank account to stop misuse of funds. The scheme is for first two childbirths only.
Only those women who are having Aadhaar card are allowed benefit under this scheme. No doubt this is a welcome step from central government, but the state government must ensure that this scheme is fully implemented. Indeed this is a very happy and good news for women of India but to avail its benefits they must enroll themselves for Aadhaar card to get social scheme benefits.
