KALIKOT: The government in Karnali State has launched a campaign, ‘Bank account to daughter, lifelong security’ to encourage couples to protect and empower daughters in Kalikot district.

Under this program, the government is opening bank account in the name of each girl born in Karnali State and providing Rs 1,000 on the birth of the baby girl.

Moreover, Rs 500 will be deposited every month in their account for 20 years so as to resist the trend of female feticide and gender-based discrimination rife in some districts in the State. The beneficiary, however, has to remain unmarried until that age to avail the benefits.

Chief Minister Mahendra Bahadur Shahi launched the program in the district by providing a cheque bearing Rs 1,000 to the parents of four-month-old Jankari Pariyar- Darshana Damai from Manma Khadachakra Municipality-3; and two-month-old Ratna Sunar- Jamuna Sunar from the same locality here on Tuesday.
