CS emphasises on proper implementation of schemes for girl students

ITANAGAR, Jun 20: Chief Secretary Satya Gopal gave emphasis on properly implementation of the Vidya scheme, sanitary hygiene scheme and Dulari Kanya scheme in convergence with other schemes of the Women and Child Development department for retention of female children in schools.
Reviewing the implementation of the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao (BBBP) scheme in the State Task Force (STF) meeting held here on Wednesday, he said ‘there should be toilets for girl students in every school and Anganwadi centre.
The CS further said that pregnant mothers should be tracked down for awareness on the BBBP scheme through the Anganwadi centres. He also gave emphasis on vaccination and institutional delivery system.
The BBBP scheme was launched by the Prime Minister of India on 22 January, 2015 at Panipat, Haryana to address the declining Child Sex Ratio (CSR) in the country.
Hundred districts in the country were initially identified as gender critical on the basis of declining CSR as per 2011 census. Dibang Valley district in Arunachal Pradesh was identified among them in 2015 with CSR of 889 as per 2011 census.
Later in March 2018, the BBBP scheme was expanded and five districts, namely West Siang, East Kameng, Kurung Kumey, Lower Dibang Valley and Upper Siang, have been identified for multi-sectoral action and 10 other districts included for media advocacy and outreach.
Higher officials from the departments of Women and Child Development, Finance, Education, and members of the Arunachal Pradesh State Legal Services Authority also attended the review meeting.
