The progress of a nation largely depends on the progressive thoughts it holds and those it implements in its policies. With the turn of the century, India as a young nation has decided to drop several regressive ideas and move forward to build a progressive nation – one that has the interest of everyone at heart, without any form of discrimination. 

The Madhya Pradesh Mukhyamantri Avivahita Pension is a scheme that has been launched by the Madhya Pradesh government to support and extend financial support to unmarried women in the state who are above 50 years of age.

About the Madhya Pradesh Avivahita Pension scheme

Regressive beliefs often look down on women who are unmarried. They are often believed to be liabilities to a traditional household. However, with the implementation of the Avivahita Pension scheme, the women who are unmarried in the state and whose age is more than 50 will now receive support from the state government. This is an empowerment scheme aimed to make unmarried women in the state self-reliant.

This scheme will go a long way in offering unmarried women some source of support and help.

With such schemes in place, the state government is making it clear that it has women empowerment at the heart of its policies and that progressive thoughts are at the core of the schemes implemented. Through this scheme especially, the state government sends out a bold signal – one that announces that one’s marital status does not define one’s worth alone.
