The benefits of the scheme are extended to the parents, who had adopted family planning after two alive children, are registered in anganwadi centre and are not income tax payees.

The number of girls benefited by the scheme so far is 5.50 lakh.

After the scheme’s implementation, a positive change has started to come in the social attitude towards birth of a girl child.

The scheme was later expanded further and now free bicycles are also being given to the girls in whose village there is no middle school and they have to take admission in class VI in the middle school of other village.

So far, 16.50 lakh bicycles have been distributed.

Before the implementation of this scheme, there were lakhs of girls, who had to abandon studies after completing primary education only because there was no middle, high or higher secondary school in their village and they did not have means to travel to other villages to pursue education.
