Introducing Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana
The PM Matru Vandana Yojana aims to provide partial compensation for the wages lost during pregnancy. Due to the cash incentives available under the PMMVY scheme, pregnant women and lactating mothers can get sufficient rest before and after the birth of their first child. Furthermore, the plan also strives to improve the health-seeking behaviour amongst pregnant women.
Beneficiaries of the PMMVY Scheme
All Pregnant Women (PW) and Lactating Mothers (LM), except for the ones under regular employment with the State Government, Central Government or Public Sector Undertaking. Or PW & LM who are receiving similar benefits under any other law in force.
Eligible PW & LM who have their pregnancy after or on January 1, 2017, for their first child.
Pregnant and lactating Anganwadi Workers (AWW), Anganwadi Helpers (AWH) and Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHA).
In case of stillbirth or miscarriage, the beneficiary shall receive the PMMVY benefits only once. Thus, the PW & LM can claim the remaining instalments in the event of future pregnancies.
In the event of infant mortality, no further benefits shall be available for future pregnancies as the beneficiary has received all the instalments under the PMMVY scheme.
Benefits Under Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana
