(a) & (b): The National Food Security Act, 2013 (NFSA) provides for maternity benefit of not less than Rs.6,000/- in such installments as may be prescribed by the Central Government. Under Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana (PMMVY), maternity benefit of Rs.5,000/- is provided in three installments to eligible Pregnant Women and Lactating Mothers (PW&LM) during the period of pregnancy and lactation for the first living child. The eligible beneficiaries also receive cash incentive as per approved norms towards maternity benefit under Janani Suraksha Yojana (JSY), administered by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare after institutional delivery so that on an average, a woman gets Rs.6,000/-.

(c): The Government of India has approved Pan-India implementation of PMMVY to cover all the districts of the country with effect from 01.01.2017. The State/ UT wise details of number of beneficiaries who have received all the three installments under PMMVY since 2017 is at Annexure-I.
