Kanya Sumangala yojana will provide a fund worth Rs 15000 to every family where a girl child is born. The amount will be released to the family in a phased manner.

While launching the Kanya Sumangala Yojana, the UP CM also launched the Kanya Sumangala web portal and conferred symbolic cheques and certificates to some of the beneficiaries. The actual amount, however, will be transferred directly into the accounts of the beneficiaries.

Over 1.25 lakh registrations have already been initiated under the scheme. All girl children born after April 1, 2019 are eligible for the full fund.

For the girl children born before April 1, 2019, the date will be used as a cut-off for other levels, in which they will be entitled to receive a part of the fund.

For eg, if a girl child has taken admission in Class 1 after April 1, 2019, the funds that would have been released at her birth and completion of first vaccination will be subtracted and the remaining will be given to her in the scheduled installments.
