Saraswati Yojana

Saraswati Yojana is one of the other initiative to empower women in the state of Jharkhand. The scheme is especially for the construction labourers. Under the scheme when a girl child takes birth to any couple, that couple will get an account with Rs. 5000 in it at the time of birth and for the next five consecutive years same amount will get deposited in the account which sums up to Rs. 1 lakh. This money can be used for the education or marriage of the girl child. But the money from the account can be used only after girl child attains maturity. This initiative gave the hope that more n more girl child will take birth and women will get empower too. Though its honeypot kind of process but the scheme is showing its results, near about some good thousand number of labourers got their account which means 1000+ girls took birth. And education with the money girl child will be getting under the scheme, will make society educated as well. Because it is well said that “when a man gets educated he can educate someone other, but when a woman get educated she educates complete family”.
