Ladli Laxmi Yojna -- which is being implemented in Madhya Pradesh for the last five years for bringing about positive thinking towards birth of girls in society, improve sex ratio and improve girls' health and education status -- has also been emulated by six big states including Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Delhi, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Goa. Inspired by Madhya Pradesh, these states have adopted Ladli Laxmi Yojna with different names and laid foundation of golden future of girls, an officials release said. In Madhya Pradesh, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan implemented several schemes to ensure girls' socio-economic security and to improve their health and education status. On his initiative, the scheme was launched in the state from Raisen on April 1, 2007. Since then, Mr Chouhan has been taking interest in the implementation of the scheme himself and distributed savings certificates under the scheme at his programmes at district, tahsils and towns. States like Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand had even sent their officers to Madhya Pradesh to collect information about the scheme. First of all, Delhi started its scheme naming it as 'Ladli' on January 1, 2008. Rules for the scheme were also framed as 'Delhi Ladli Scheme Rules 2008'. The scheme aims at making girls socio-economically secure, educated and self-reliant. More UNI BDG BH SB2034 NNNN
