All You Need to Know About Kanya Sumangala Yojana

What is Kanya Sumangala Yojana?

The Kanya Sumangala Yojana is a landmark initiative of the Hon'ble Chief Minister of UP to bring about a positive change in the lives of the girl child in UP. The scheme aims to improve the male-female sex ratio that fell since the girl child was killed at birth, and if they did survive, they did not get any education as the male child did.

It is important to note that there are specific guidelines to avail of the financial benefits under the Kanya Sumangala Yojana. Families with two girl children or three where there are twins are only eligible for this scheme. Only girl children born on or after 1st April 2019 are eligible for full assistance.

There are six stages at which assistance is given to the girl child, and each stage has certain documentation and deadlines to be followed. All documents should be admitted within the given deadline to avail of the benefit at all stages to qualify for the Mukhyamantri Kanya Sumangala Yojana Scheme.

The State Government of Uttar Pradesh launched the Mukhyamantri Kanya Sumangala Yojana Scheme in Lucknow on 25th October 2019. This social welfare scheme aimed to provide a better quality of life for the girl child in UP state. This benefit is limited to two girl children per family.
