This unique initiative which started 15 years ago has today developed a new mindset towards daughters across the country. Many states have adopted this scheme of MP. Today it has been more than 15 years since the scheme was launched. In the initial phase, the provision for education up to 12th was kept in the scheme for our daughters who became Ladli.
