ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF WOMEN AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT
(DR.VIRENDRA KUMAR)
(a) & (b): Yes, Madam, Balika Samridhi Yojana has been discontinued from Eleventh Plan onwards and at present the scheme is not in existence either as Central Scheme or Centrally Sponsored Scheme. Several reasons/constraints were reported by the States regarding implementation of Balika Samridhi which are given as under-

i. This Yojana amount was meager and the waiting period for maturity was too long – Rs. 6700/- total amount was to be received after waiting for 18 years; 
ii. After first deposit at birth , there was a gap of 6 years where the deposit had to be kept alive without any transactions;
iii. Issue of keeping fixed deposits for over 5 years was another technical hitch; families could not get benefit as amounts were locked. Scholarships amounts were blocked, therefore no incentive for girl to be retained in school;
iv. Multi agency delivery mechanism and hence administrative costs were high; scheme did not provide adequately for administration costs of the scheme;
v. The time and effort in implementation was high more than 11 transactions for an amount of Rs. 6700/-.

The planning Commission had proposed transfer of BSY to States since 2005-06. Therefore, no funds were released to States.

(c) : No Madam

(d) to (e): Does not arise.
