There is tremendous enthusiasm among women in Chhattisgarh regarding the Mahtari Vandan Yojana. Particularly, women from poor, middle, and lower-middle-class backgrounds have found considerable relief from this scheme.

She added that the funds received through the scheme enable women to better cater to their children’s needs, manage household expenses, purchase daily essentials, and meet other requirements. They are also saving for the future, promoting self-reliance and confidence among women.
