During the programme, enrollment of beneficiaries under ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ scheme was also done. The BJP Mahila took the initiative to give benefit to every girl child under the age of 10 years and below by opening bank accounts for them and deposit the money until they attain adulthood or 18 years.
