Abstract:

Education for women is the best way to improve the health, nutrition and economic status of a household that constitute a micro unit of a nation economy. In this context, it can be argued that lack of women education can be an impediment to the country’s economic development. In India, women achieve far less education that of men. As per the Census Report 2011, the literacy rate of women is 65.46 per cent and that of men is 82.14 per cent. The Union Government has expanded “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao” (BBBP) programme from 161 districts to all 640 districts of the country. As per data available in Health Management Information System (HMIS), there has been improvement in sex ratio at birth (SRB). The SRB which was 918 in 2014-15 has improved to 926 in 2016-17 as per HMIS data. This is the miserable condition of the daughters in some parts of the country where the girls are not treated equal to boys, not allowed to go to the schools beyond primary classes, deprived of all the facilities which their brothers enjoy with extreme liberty and in some cases the girls are not allowed to take birth and they get killed in the womb of their mothers.  “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao” Scheme is a central government programme. “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao” is an effective campaign to save the girl child and educate the girl child all over the India. It is a scheme run by the Government of India with the aim of spreading awareness as well as improving the efficient of welfare services for the girls of India
