BJP Government has launched the Ladli Laxmi Yojana Scheme for girls entering the age of 18, living up to the mandate given by the Parrikar led BJP party in the 2012 elections in Goa. This scheme ensures financial help of Rs. 1,00,000 (one lac) for marriage for Goan girls entering the age of 18 years. This scheme has been designed for parents to overcome financial difficulties during thier daughter marriage. This also help bring up the Sex ratio by discouraging the killing of girl child in the womb of the mother.
This is an excerpt from the 2011 Budget speech by chief minister Mr Manohar Parrikar with some details about scheme:
“Sir, marriage is a golden moment in the life of any girl. She enters into
wedlock and these golden moments are treasured and cherished throughout
her life. All our daughters would have been fortunate to realize their dreams,
but for lack of finances. To overcome these financial difficulties, my
Government would like to lend a helping hand to her, under the “Laadli Laxmi
Scheme” with a package of ` 1,00,000/- with our sincere blessings. I hope
that the scheme discourages the practice of killing a girl child in the womb of
the mother which is resulting in to distorted Sex ratio. I have provided 150
crore for the implementation of Ladli Laxmi Scheme.”
