Beti Bachao Beti Padhao

Beti Bachao Beti Padhao:

Central government announced the inclusion of the skilling of girls in non-traditional livelihood (NTL) options in the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ scheme.

  • Non-Traditional livelihood: It includes sectors and jobs where the participation of women is and has historically been conventionally low or absent.
  • Increasing the enrolment of girls in secondary education, particularly in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) subjects.
  • Non-traditional vocations: Girls will be given skill training in non-traditional vocations, making them torchbearers of a women-led Aatmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India).

New aims in the scheme:

  • Secondary education: Ensuring a 1% increment in enrolment at the secondary level
  • Skilling: girls and women every year
  • Raising awareness: about safe menstrual hygiene
  • Child marriage: Promulgating elimination of child marriages
