‘Ladli Lakshmi’ scheme to be implemented in Goa from July


“The marriages that took place after 1 April 2012 would be covered under the programme,” CM Manohar Parrikar said. “The scheme will cost Rs150 crore annually,” he added
Panaji: The BJP-led government's flagship “Ladli Lakshmi” scheme, under which Rs1 lakh would be given to girls above 18 to meet their marriage expenses, will be implemented in Goa from the second week of July, reports PTI.
“The scheme would formally open by June 30 but actual disbursement of the money will start from 10th July,” chief minister Manohar Parrikar told reporters.
Under the scheme, the state will provide Rs1 lakh to the girls who have attained the age of 18 to meet their marriage expenses, he said.
“(To qualify for the scheme), the girl should be born in Goa or at least one of her parents should be born in Goa,” the Chief Minister said.
The marriages that took place after 1 April 2012 would be covered under the programme, he said.
The basic aim of the scheme is to ensure that the parents don’t consider the girl child as a burden on them, Mr Parrikar said.
Girls aged between 18 and 38 years would be covered under the scheme. The government would deposit Rs1 lakh in the name of the girl once she turns 18 years. Banks have been roped in to implement the scheme.
The scheme will cost Rs150 crore annually, Mr Parrikar said.
