(The Gist of Kurukshetra) Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana


Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana

is a Maternity Benefit Programme introduced for Pregnant Women & Lactating Mothers (PW&LM). Under this scheme, partial compensation is provided to mothers for the wage loss in terms of cash incentives so that they can take adequate rest before and after delivery of the child. However, the scheme is restricted to only one child per woman.

In the present budget, the maternity leave has been increased up to 26 weeks which is a commendable initiative as working mothers often land up quitting their jobs after having children. Further, to help women working in un-organised sector, Creches have been mandated to provide day-care facilities for children (6 months to 6 years) and al 0 to improve nutrition and health status of children.
