Kanya Utthan Yojna Bihar 2022

It is believed that Indian society has always been patriarchal in nature and hence women have been deprived of several rights since ancient times. However, with passing time, many beliefs are changing in this modern era.

It is not so easy to change the mindset of people in very less time, especially of uneducated people. But it can be quite easy by educating girl childs and this can only be possible through collective efforts of citizens and government support.

The Indian government has launched Beti Bachao Beti Padhao to promote education of girl childs in our country. Similarly state governments are also making efforts for the same. One of the best efforts is made by the government of Bihar.

The Bihar government has launched Kanya Utthan Yojna according to which girls will get more than INR 90K in between the time interval of  their birth to the completion of their graduation. This initiative was launched in 2019 and till then some changes have been made to this.

Financial problems are the most important factor in compromising the education of a girl child in poor families. Hence, these scholarships were considered as a good initiative.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Must be a domicile of Bihar.
  • Must be unmarried.
