Ladli Laxmi Yojana is a scheme introduced by government of Madhya Pradesh with the objective to lay a firm foundation of girls’ future through improvement in their educational and economic status and to bring about a positive change in social attitude towards birth of a girl.[1] The scheme was inaugurated by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan in 2007,[2] which was followed by expansion to six additional states.[3]

Under the scheme the government purchases National Savings Certificate of Rs 6,000 each year for five years and these would be renewed from time to time. At the time of girl's admission in the sixth standard, Rs 2,000 and on admission in the ninth standard Rs 4,000 would be paid to the girl. When she gets admitted in the 11th standard she would receive Rs 7,500. During her higher secondary education she would get Rs 200 every month. On completion of 21 years she would receive the remaining amount, which would be more than Rs 1 lakh.[4]
