In a heartwarming gesture, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan of Madhya Pradesh has announced a significant initiative to celebrate the spirit of Raksha Bandhan. As part of this gesture, ₹250 will be distributed as a Raksha Bandhan gift to all women across the state. This announcement is a testament to the government’s commitment to women’s empowerment and recognition of their invaluable role in society.
Additionally, beginning in October, women in the state will receive a substantial boost under the Ladli Behna Yojana. The scheme, which has been applauded for its focus on supporting and uplifting women, will see the monthly assistance amount increased to ₹1,250. This enhancement aims to provide financial stability and opportunities for women to contribute even more effectively to their families and communities.
CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan expressed his enthusiasm for these initiatives, stating, “Women are the cornerstone of our society, and it is essential to ensure their well-being and progress. These steps reflect our commitment to empowering women and acknowledging their integral role in our state’s development.”
The Raksha Bandhan gift and the augmented assistance through the Ladli Behna Yojana are anticipated to positively impact the lives of countless women in Madhya Pradesh. The increased financial support is expected to open doors for education, skill development, and entrepreneurship, fostering a more prosperous and equitable society.
This move by the Madhya Pradesh government is not only a tribute to the bond between brothers and sisters on Raksha Bandhan but also a significant stride toward gender equality and inclusive growth. With these initiatives, the state sets an inspiring example for acknowledging and valuing the contributions of women to the state’s progress.
As October approaches, women across Madhya Pradesh eagerly await the implementation of the revised Ladli Behna Yojana, which promises to be a transformative step in their journey toward empowerment and self-reliance.
