PDP busy beating dead horse called Laadli Beti
Scheme has benefited a handful of girls

Early Times Report
Jammu, Jan 10: In a bid to hoodwink masses, the chief of PDP's women's wing has issued a detailed statement in which she has underscored the major initiatives undertaken by the PDP led government in the state. However, glaring facts are only belying the PDPs claims.
In a statement, PDP's women's wing chief stated that under the 'Laadli' scheme, Rs 1000 would be deposited by the government for 14 years in the account of a girl child born after April 1, 2015 to a family whose annual income is Rs 75000 or below and after attaining the age of 21 years, the girl child will get a lump sum amount of Rs 6.50 lakh. She described it as one of the major achievements of the PDPled government, forgetting to even mention that how many people have actually been benefitted through it.
The scheme was launched in the state on October 28, 2015. Under the scheme, it was stated at the time of its launch that the state government will contribute Rs 1,000 per month towards the birth of every girl child born after April 1, 2015 for the next 14 years. Upon reaching the age of 21, the girl child would receive a sum of Rs 6.5 lakh. The scheme is to be implemented on pilot basis in six districts of the State including Jammu, Kathua, Samba, Anantnag, Budgam and Pulwama.
However, as per the reports, the cases related to it are only piling up and gathering dust at the government officers with least beneficiaries making it to the list.
As per the official data, there are as many as 5300 cases related to the scheme which have been kept in limbo without any reason and no approval has been accorded to these files till date. The cases are waiting for verification by the concerned Child Development Project Officers (CDPO) in the four districts of the valley where the scheme was launched on pilot basis.
Official documents reveal that an estimated amount of Rs 250 lakhs were allocated out of the state exchequer for the implementation of the scheme in all identified districts of Jammu and Kashmir.
As per the scheme guidelines, upon reaching 21 years, the girl would receive a sum of Rs 6.5 lakh, transferred directly in her bank accounts. In Jammu, the scheme is implemented in three districts - Jammu, Kathua and Samba.
As per the reports, such is the dilatory mode of functioning in the concerned offices related to the scheme that the people have stooped applying for any financial grant under the programme. "The undeniable fact is that the applicant has to move from pillar to post to get the application accepted. Then he has to obtain requisite certificates from the concerned offices to prove the eligibility. At last, the file gets shelved and the applicant has to wait for its approval for months and years. The reality is that the scheme isn't benefitting the non-affluent lot of the state," says an official of the concerned department.
