Enrolments under PMMVY

Posted On: 29 JUL 2022 2:30PM by PIB Delhi

The Ministry of Women and Child Development is implementing Centrally Sponsored Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana (PMMVY) with effect from 01.01.2017 with the objectives of (i) providing partial compensation for the wage loss in terms of cash incentive, so that the woman can take adequate rest before and after delivery of the first child; and (ii) to improve health seeking behaviour amongst the Pregnant Women & Lactating Mothers (PW&LM). PMMVY provides cash incentive of Rs. 5000/- directly to the bank/post office account of PW&LM. The eligible beneficiaries receive the remaining cash incentive, as per approved norms towards maternity benefit under Janani Suraksha Yojana after institutional delivery, so that on an average a woman gets Rs. 6000/-. The salient features of PMMVY are at Annexure-I.

The PMMVY is a component under the sub-scheme ‘Samarthya’ of the newly launched ‘Mission Shakti’, an umbrella scheme for safety, security and empowerment of women. The revamped PMMVY under Mission Shakti now also aims to promote positive behavioral change towards girl child by providing additional cash incentive for the second child, if that is a girl child.

The following changes in the salient features of PMMVY have been introduced with effect from 01.04.2022 with the launch of new Mission Shakti:

  1. The scheme is to provide maternity benefits to women belonging to socially and economically disadvantaged sections of society;
  2. The maternity benefit is to be provided to a woman for the first two living children provided the second child is a girl;
  3. For the first child the maternity benefit of ₹5000 is provided in two instalments under PMMVY and the beneficiary is also entitled to receive the cash incentive as per approved norms towards Maternity Benefit under Janani Suraksha Yojana (JSY) after institutional delivery so that on an average ,a women gets ₹6000
  4. For the second child, the benefit of ₹6000 is to be provided subject to second child is a girl child, in one installment after the birth;
  5. The beneficiary’s husband’s Aadhaar is not mandatory for availing the benefits under the Scheme;
  6. Cases of miscarriage/still births are to be treated as fresh cases for providing maternity benefit under the scheme.

Since inception of the Scheme, more than 2.89 crore PW&LM have been enrolled and ₹11,217.39 crore has been disbursed as on 15.07.2022. The State/UT-wise number of beneficiaries enrolled, number of beneficiaries provided maternity benefits and total amount disbursed during the last five years and the current financial year till 15.07.2022 is at Annexure-II.

The funds under PMMVY are released to States/UTs on the basis of indicative targets and utilisation of released funds. Thus, State/UT-wise and city-wise allocations are not made under PMMVY. The State/UT-wise details of funds released under PMMVY during the last five years are at Annexure-III.

This information was given by the Union Minister of Women and Child Development, Smt. Smriti Zubin Irani, in a written reply in Lok Sabha today.
