Rajiv Gandhi National Creche Scheme for the Children of Working Mothers (RGNCS – a day care scheme for children of working women)

The Rajiv Gandhi National Creche Scheme for the children of working mothers is the scheme launched by central government (Ministry of Woman and Child Development). The main objective of this scheme is to provide a nursery where babies and young children are cared for during the working day. Employment of women has resulted in increased opportunities for their employment, and more and more women are now in gainful employment, working within or outside their homes. Thus the children of these women, who were earlier getting support from relatives and friends while their mothers were at work, are now in need of day care services which provide quality care and protection for the children. Therefore women need a safe place for their children in their absence. It has become necessary to provide support to the young children in terms of quality, substitute care, and other services while the mothers are at work. Effective day care for young children is essential and a cost-effective investment as it provides support to both mothers and young children.
