What exactly is the Ladli Scheme?
• This scheme by the government of India make payment in the name of a girl child annually, which is kept as a fixed deposit which can then be collected with interest when the girl reaches 18 years of age. • In this case, the parents should be Delhi-based or should have been living there for a minimum of 3 years. The child should also be born in Delhi. • It is a scheme for girls whose parents earn less than Rs.1,00,000 per annum. • The conditions sound easy don’t they? Thousands of people can fulfill it. But let us see, how the Ladli Scheme has helped the National Capital.
