ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF WOMEN AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT
(DR. VIRENDRA KUMAR)

(a) & (c): Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Schene (BBBP) was launched by Hon'' Prime Minister on 22nd January, 2015, addresses the declining Child Sex Ratio (CSR) and related issues of women empowerment and aims to change mindsets to value girl child. It is a tri-ministerial effort of Ministries of Women and Child Development, Health & Family Welfare and Human Resource Development. The key elements of the scheme include nation-wide awareness and advocacy campaign and multi- sectoral interventions. Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Scheme is currently being implemented in 161 districts across the country. The Government of India has decided to expand the BBBP scheme and covering all the 640 districts (as per census 2011) in the Country, through Multi -sectoral intervention in 244 districts in addition to existing 161 districts and Alert District Media & Advocacy in 235 districts. A list of States/UTs wise Child Sex Ration (CSR) is at Annexure –I, a list of States/UTs wise number of districts selected for multi- sectoral interventions and advocacy & media campaign is at Annexure-II and a list of States/UTs wise funds released under the scheme during last three years and current year is at Annexure-III.

No such situation happened under BBBP Scheme where funds have not been released on receipt of complete District Action Plan from States/UTs.

(d) To improve the Child Sex Ratio and to create an enabling environment for the education of girl child is a long-term challenge. CSR is calculated on Decadal basis by Registrar General of India through census. As per HMIS data of MoHFW, out of 161 selected districts, sex ratio at birth (SRB) has shown improving trend in 104 districts (1 district stable trend) in the period between 2015-16 and 2016-17. There are indications of initial encouraging trends. BBBP is already capturing collective consciousness in the Country. The scheme has been well received and in the last three years, several local innovative interventions have been demonstrated by the districts and States/UTs with support from Departments of WCD, Health & Education, besides National Media and advocacy campaigns through I&B.

(e) BBBP scheme is now being implemented in all 640 districts as per census 2011 across the country. It aims to address the issue of declining Child Sex Ratio (CSR) through a mass campaign across the country targeted at changing societal mindsets and creating awareness about the criticality of the issue. It is a joint initiative of Ministry of Women and Child Development, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and Ministry of Human Resource Development.

(f) Multi-sectoral interventions and Media campaign and advocacy outreach of BBBP are taken up for greater coverage/reach in the country. BBBP is already capturing collective consciousness in the Country.
