The government of Telangana State had introduced new schemes, that is called Kalyana Lakshmi Pathakam (Scheme) to help for SC, ST and BC Brides and Shadi Mubarak Scheme to help for Muslim brides. The government had issued separate guidelines and Procedures for application and processing on these schemes. The Kalyana Lakshmi Pathakam for extending the financial assistance of Rs. 1,00,116/- to each unmarried girl belonging to SC /ST at the time of marriage residing in Telangana State and the Shadi Mubarak Scheme for extending financial assistance of Rs.1,00,116/- to each unmarried girl belonging to Muslim at the time of marriage residing in Telangana State.
Unfortunately, the general feeling of many even now, is that the girl child is a bane to their family. In several Dalits and Girijan families unable to get the girl child married, they resort to selling them immediately after their birth. Realizing this harsh fact, the Telangana State government has decided to provide financial assistance of Rs. 1,00,116/-to the family of the girl child to perform their marriage and named the scheme as “Kalyanalaxmi” for SC, ST, and BC Girls and Shadi Mubarak Scheme for Muslim unmarried girls. Now here in India, such a scheme is in existence. One should feel proud of introducing such a scheme in Telangana. This reduces the burden on the Girijan, Dalits, BCs and Muslims families. In this regarding Telangana Government has issued an order for Partial modification on “Kalyana Lakshmi Pathakam”.
The government enhanced the financial assistance from Rs.75,116/- to Rs.1,00,116/- under the scheme ‘Kalyana Lakshmi Pathakam’ and ‘Shadi Mubarak’ w.e.f. 01.04.2018 to all to all the BCs and EBCs, SCs and STs unmarried girl. Eligibility for Kalyana Lakshmi Pathakam/Shadi Mubark Scheme
