Ladli Behna Yojana: Empowering Women in Madhya Pradesh In a significant move to empower women in Madhya Pradesh, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced an increase in the amount received under the Ladli Behna Yojana. The scheme, aimed at supporting the welfare of women in the state, will now provide an increased amount of Rs 1,250 per month, up from the previous amount of Rs 1,000. This announcement was made during the "Laadli Bahna Sammelan" organized on the auspicious occasion of Raksha Bandhan at Bhopal's Jamboree Maidan.
During the event, the Chief Minister transferred an amount of Rs 250 directly to the accounts of 1.25 crore sisters in the state with just a single click. This gesture not only symbolizes the government's commitment to women's empowerment but also serves as a special gift to celebrate the festival of Raksha Bandhan.
In addition to the increased financial assistance, the Ladli Behna Yojana also released the Ladli Behna Calendar during the event. This calendar serves as a reminder of the government's dedication to the welfare and progress of women in Madhya Pradesh through Ladli Behna Yojana. Furthermore, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan made an important announcement regarding the closure of liquor shops in areas where a majority of the sisters express their disapproval of their presence.
This decision reflects the government's commitment to addressing the concerns and preferences of the women in the state.
