December 27: The State-2 government is set to launch a campaign ‘daughter insurance week’ to reach out its benefits to grassroots level.
The campaign will be run as part of the daughter education insurance under State-2 government’s popular programme ‘educate daughter, protect daughter’. Though the government had announced insurance package to contribute to the education of daughters born in the State-2 since 15 January 2018, However, it was not implemented well owing to human resource crunch. Reviewing the sluggish progress, the government decided to run camps in every local level to provide insurance and plus in the doorsteps of target beneficiaries. Priyanka Yadav, coordinator of ‘educate daughters, protect daughters’ campaign, said the camps will be rolled out in all eight local levels of State-2 from coming January 16.
Each camp will provide education insurance along with free health check-ups and medicines for daughters. The target is to reach cent percent insurance to the daughters who took birth since last year. It is to cover the daughters whose family could not insure her due to several reasons.
