JANAKPURDHAM: Chief Minister Lal Babu Raut has said that the ‘daughter insurance scheme’ would be launched soon in Madesh Province.
An agreement was made with Global IME Bank for the program, he informed.
According to him, the scheme was halted due to COVID-19 for two years.
“Social Development Ministry and Global IME Bank have agreed for the project, so it will be enforced soon,” he said.
However, some six to seven thousand daughters are insured under the ‘CM Beti Padhau Beti Bachau’ program in the province.
Now, more daughters would be insured.
He further informed that the Province government introduced necessary laws for the elevation of women, Dalit and discriminated communities.
Raut however admitted that it was not effective as per expectation because of the inaction of implementing bodies.
