Beti Bachao Beti Padhao (BBBP) was launched in January 2015 to prevent gender-based sex-selective elimination, ensure protection and education of girl child. Under the scheme, awareness campaigns were launched in 161 selected districts.
The funds released under the scheme increased from Rs. 13 crore in 2014-15 to Rs. 59 crore in 2015-16. However, only Rs. 5 crore had been utilized out of the Rs. 43 crore (for 2016-17) till January 2017, according to a parliamentary panel report.
Since not even the funds have been utilised by the government, this is considered “Inadequate Progress”.
