Beti Bachao Beti Padhao programme is a nationwide scheme launched purposefully to address the issue of decreasing girl child ratio in the society as well as empowering girl child in the country. This scheme was successfully launched by the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 22nd of January in 2015 at Panipat, Haryana.
This scheme is to make people aware of the importance of girl child in the Indian society as well as bring some positive changes in the people mindset towards girl child. People in the Indian society have very rude mindset about the girl child. They think that girls are like burden in their life who only need to take whole life from their parents or husbands and never give.
However, it is not true, girls occupy almost half population of the world so they are half responsible for the existence of life on the earth. Less importance of girl child in the human society is causing suspense of life existence on the earth as where there is no women, no new birth would be. The continuous decrease in the ratio of girl child per boy child is clearing this issue very well. So, this scheme has been launched by keeping in mind to prevent sex determination, female foeticide, save girl child, ensure safety of girl child, as well as provide quality education to them.
