Government Schemes For Women

Some of the schemes are as follows:

Women have, for the longest time, have been subjects of oppression and inequality at workplaces. At the onset of the 21st century, In the wake of Women empowerment, the situation has finally changed and the government is bringing in more such schemes for the welfare of women. The various schemes that have been launched by the government of India have gone a long way in elevating the social standing of women and helping them overcome hurdles in their daily lives.

  1. Support to Training and Employment Programme for Women (STEP) – Under the STEP scheme, assistance will be provided to women across various sectors. Skills related to specific sectors will be imparted to women so that employment and entrepreneurship are sufficiently harboredhttps://sarkariyojanas.com/index.php/2020/03/11/support-to-training-and-employment-programme-for-women/ among women in areas that need it the most. Some of the sectors included are agriculture, horticulture, food processing, tailoring, handlooms, stitching, embroidery, zari work, etc. Except for these, skills and training will also be provided in the computer and IT sectors so that women feel empowered in the modern ways of functioning and running a business.
  2. Maharashtra Asmita Scheme – Sanitary Pads for Girls & Women to Improve Personal HygieneThe Asmita Scheme launched by the Maharashtra Government will provide 8 small sanitary pads at just ₹ 24 and larger sized pads at ₹ 29. This pricing makes it really affordable to classes whose financial status is not all that great. The government has taken this initiative to emphasize on the fact that the financial spectrum of the masses should not hinder with personal hygiene. Subsequently, this scheme will provide sanitary pads to girls studying in Zilla Parishad schools at ₹ 5. In order to streamline and better execute the distribution of pads in rural areas, the government will also launch an app. As per the strategies laid down by the scheme, if all goes as per plan, we can expect a drastic drop in the number of dropouts among schoolgirls.
  3. Ujjwala Sanitary Napkins Initiative for Women Hygiene & Employment – The central govt. has started the Ujjwala Sanitary Napkin initiative to promote hygiene and providing job opportunities to women. Each manufacturing unit would be set up at approx. cost of Rs. 2.94 crore. Each pack will comprise of 8 sanitary pads for which the cost is Rs. 42 per pack. Moreover, each manufacturing unit will employ 5 or 6 Ujjwala beneficiaries. So, this initiative will provide employment to nearly 600 women across all the districts. 

  4. Stand Up India Scheme for Women EntrepreneursThe main idea behind the scheme is to basically promote entrepreneurship at grass root levels for the main goal of economic empowerment and allowing the creation of platforms that complement job creation. This scheme was launched to coincide with the 125th Birth Anniversary of Dr. Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar. The primary purpose of this scheme is to reach out to underserved sectors of the society in order to enable them to participate in the economic growth of the nation. 

  5. BC Sakhi YojanaThe Yojana aims to connect rural areas with banks and therefore the government of Uttar Pradesh has introduced the BC Sakhi Yojana. Under this scheme, the government aims to offer 58 thousand banking Sakhi in villages. The government will also provide employment to rural areas and will offer financial support to women from the economically weaker sections of society.

  6. Bhagyalakshmi YojanaThe primary objective of the Bhagyalakshmi scheme is to discourage female infanticide and encourage poor families to raise daughters and not be so averse to raising and educating daughters.

All these efforts by the Government act as stepping stones to the growth and success of women in India and with it, the promise of a brighter future for the nation.
