The Ministry of Women & Child Development (MWCD), Government of India, cautioned the residents of Delhi today against spurious schemes being floated in the name of Beti Bachao Beti Padhao (BBBP) scheme.
The Ministry says it has found that certain unauthorised organizations and individuals are distributing illegal forms in the name of cash incentive under the BBBP scheme.
However, the Ministry said today it has noticed that the fraud in name of BBBP is taking place in Delhi also.
The matter has been reported from different parts of Delhi, particularly in Tikri, Bhatti Khurd, Dakshinpuri Extension, Sangam Vihar, Sanjay Colony, Sarita Vihar, Adarsh Nagar and JJ Colony.
The Ministry clarified that the scheme has no provision of individual cash transfer by Government of India. Beti Bachao Beti Padhao scheme focuses on challenging mindsets and deep rooted patriarchy in the societal system while advancing education of the girl child.
The focus is on issues of women empowerment over a life cycle continuum. It is not a DBT (Direct Benefit Transfer) scheme.
The Ministry advises that the fraud being committed in the name of BBBP is a very serious matter and if any such incident comes to your knowledge, you can report it to the nearest police station and the concerned District Collector / District Magistrate.
The MWCD has advised people against falling into trap of such frauds through various print and electronic platforms. It may be noted that distribution of such forms is completely illegal and there is no cash incentive associated in any form with the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Scheme.
The Ministry advises that no personal details should be shared in this regard and no one should subscribe to such fraudulent scheme and not to send any such fake form to the Ministry of WCD or any other government department.
The Ministry also has referred the case to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for investigation keeping in view the public interest and gravity of the matter.
