Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, said on Monday that his administration would guarantee homemakers from economically disadvantaged sectors of the population a monthly income of Rs 10,000.

To assure this, he added, self-help organizations would be created for these women under the Livelihood Mission, and they will be able to get bank loans with an interest rate of only 2% and a government guarantee to repay them.

After attending a ceremony to deposit the second installment of the ambitious Ladli Behna plan of the state government into the bank accounts of recipients, Chouhan spoke to the media.

Beneficiary women get monthly help from the state exchequer of Rs 1,000 under the program.

The sum would be gradually raised to Rs 3,000, according to a recent statement by the chief minister.

“We have also agreed to expand the Ladli Behna scheme’s benefits to married women between the ages of 21 and 23. Beginning on July 25, they will be able to apply for it, Chouhan said.
