Considering the encouraging results of implementation in 161 districts the Government of India has expanded the BBBP Scheme in all 640 districts (as per census 2011) of the Country on 8th March, 2018. The 405 districts are covered through Multi -sectoral intervention, Media & Advocay and 235 districts covered through alert Media & Advocacy outreach.
