Sukanya Samridhi Yojna – A Small Savings Scheme for Better Future
Gender inequality in India is not a recent or shocking phenomenon. Women education is regarded as an unnecessary cost and their marriage expenses as a burden and liability. In order to provide for savings for a girl child, the Government has launched a scheme called Sukanya Samridhi Yojna. This is a commendable effort by the Ministry of Finance aiming at women empowerment and financial independence of women in the country.
