Far from providing compensation, a policy aimed at new mothers is becoming the reason for distress in rural Bundelkhand

The Pradhan Mantri Matritva Vandana Yojana (PMMVY) is yet another policy-level venture drafted by a group of men vainly trying to solve an issue relating to women. Ostensibly aimed at improving the poor levels of nutrition among “Pregnant Women and Lactating Mothers”, the PMMVY provides a cash incentive of 5000 rupees to each such mother, on the birth of her first living child, payable in three instalments subject to her fulfilling certain criteria at every stage.
