It has come to the
notice of Ministry of Women & Child Development, Government of India
that certain unauthorised sites/organisations/NGOs/individuals are
distributing illegal forms in the name of cash incentive under Beti
Bachao Beti Padhao (BBBP) Scheme. The Ministry of Women & Child
Development has taken up this matter with the State Government
Authorities where this illegal activity has taken place namely Uttar
Pradesh, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Punjab and Bihar. However, it has come to
our notice that the fraud in name of BBBP is taking place in Delhi also.
The matter has been reported from different parts of Delhi, particularly
in Tikri, Bhatti Khurd, Dakshinpuri Extension, Sangam Vihar, Sanjay
Colony, Sarita Vihar, Adarsh Nagar and JJ Colony.
It is clarified that the scheme has no provision of individual CASH
TRANSFER by Government of India. Beti Bachao Beti Padhao scheme focuses
on challenging mindsets and deep rooted patriarchy in the societal
system, strict enforcement of PC&PNDT Act, advancing education of the
girl child. The focus is on issues of women empowerment over a life
cycle continuum. It is not a DBT (Direct Benefit Transfer) scheme.
