Solution :[c] A side for this scheme. DHANLAKSHMI-Conditional Cash Transfer for Girl Child with Insurance Cover A new Pilot Scheme "Dhanlakshmi- conditional Cash Transfer for Girl Child with Insurance Cover (CCT)" was launched on 3rd March, 2008 by the Ministry of Women and Child Development. The Scheme provides cash transfer to the family of the girl child (preferable the mother) on fulfilling certain specific conditionalities, for the girl child: 1 At birth and registration of birth 1 On progress of immunization (6 monthly transfer) On completion of full immunization > On enrolment and retention in school (MWCD will provide cash transfer till Class B and MHRD will provide cash incentives from Classes 9 to 12) 1 Remains unmarried at the age of 18 years. In addition, an insurance maturity coverage to the tune of Rs.1 lakh would be taken for the girl child born on and after the cut-off date suggested in the Scheme. The objective of the scheme is twofold: 1. The direct and tangible objective is to provide a set of staggered financial incentives for families to encourage them to retain the girl child and educate her. 2. The more subtle and intangible objective is to change the attitudinal mindset of the family towards the girl. This will force the families to look upon the girl as an asset rather than a liability since her very existence has led to cash inflow to the family.
