The Government launched the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (BBBP) initiative on 22nd January 2015 in Haryana. The objective is to do away with the discrimination against girl child and provide equal opportunities. The reason for launching the same is that the Census (2011) showed a declining trend in the Child Sex Ratio (CSR) in the age group 0-6 years which indicated a low sex ratio at birth and the discrimination post-birth (in the form of health, nutrition, educational needed).
The mindset of people of discriminating against girls and preference of boys on one hand and availability, and misuse of diagnostic tools, on the other hand, have been critical in declining CSR. Coordinated and convergent efforts were needed for the survival, protection and empowerment of girl child and hence the BBBP is a tri-ministerial effort of the Ministry of Women and Child Development, Ministry of Human Resource Development and Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
The main objectives of the BBBP initiative are:
A nationwide campaign was launched for celebrating the Girl Child under this initiative. This campaign is also to enable the education of Girl Child. The campaign was directed towards abolishing the discrimination against girl child and provide an equal opportunity to be born, nurtured, and educated. A complete media approach is being adopted to create awareness and disseminate information about the issue across the nation.
The multi-sectoral action in selected 405 districts (inclusive of existing 161) covering all States/UTs will concentrate on sectoral actions and schematic intervention in dialogue with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and Ministry of Human Resource Development.
The central government will provide 100% assistance for implementing the BBBP initiative to the District Collectors. For the administration and budgetary control of this initiative in the Central Government, the Ministry of Women and Child Development, will be responsible.
For the State, the Secretary, Department of Women and Child Development will be responsible for the overall direction and implementation of the initiative. The nodal officer for the implementation of the initiative will be the DPO (District Probation Officer). The implementation of the initiative will be through the ‘Integrated Child Development Services’ platform at various levels in convergence with the Education, Health and Panchayati Raj Ministry.
The BBBP initiative has goals that are laid out and monitored as follows:
The Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao initiative also has a social media presence that is a Youtube channel to create awareness about the issue. In addition to this, the same has been launched on the MyGov platform to seek active participation and make the initiative a grand success.
