Today, there are 44 lakh 50 thousand Ladli Lakshmis in the state. 956 daughters are being born for every 1000 sons. I will keep making efforts in this direction until 1000 daughters are born on 1000 sons, he said.

The forms for the scheme will start filling from March 25. For this, camps will be organised in every village and ward. EKYC for the scheme will be filled at Common Service Centre, Ration Shop and MP Online Kiosk.
No fee will be charged for this. Its fee Rs 15 per application will be filled by the government. A complaint can be registered on 181 if anyone demands money. Strict action will be taken against the concerned. From June 10, money will start coming into the accounts of the women.
