Power Minister, Piyush Goyal, revealed,

A pregnant or lactating woman’s first child will get up to Rs 6,000. Out of this, Rs 5,000 will be given by the women and child development ministry in three installments.

 

 



Goyal also explained that even though the scheme limits itself to firstborns, the pilot scheme was applicable to the “first two live births.” The mother will initially receive Rs, 1,000 after registering the pregnancy, Rs. 2,000 after at least one antenatal check up and the remaining amount after the birth of the child and after the child had received the first cycle of  BCG, OPV, DPT and Hepatitis-B or its equivalent.

The eligible beneficiaries would continue to receive the remaining cash incentive as per approved norms towards Maternity Benefit under existing programmes after institutional delivery so that on an average, a woman will get Rs 6,000.

On December 31 last year, PM Modi announced the pan-India expansion of the Indira Gandhi Matritva Sahyog Yojana after its success at the pilot stage.
