Pune, 5th July 2024: Applications for the Chief Minister’s Majhi Ladki Bahin Scheme are pouring in from Pune district and across Maharashtra. The application process, which commenced on 1st July, allows applicants to apply both in person and through the Nari Shakti Doot app. However, many are encountering technical difficulties when using the app, prompting calls for immediate resolution of these issues.

The Maharashtra State Government has initiated the implementation of the Chief Minister’s Majhi Ladki Bahin Scheme, offering opportunities for women across the state. The response, particularly from women in Pune district, has been substantial, with many eager to avail themselves of the scheme’s benefits.

Anganwadi Sevaks are assisting in the application process, where applicants need to present their ration card and Aadhaar card to the workers in their respective villages. The requirement is that the ration card should not be older than 15 years, and a birth certificate is mandatory, as informed by Jamsingh Girase, Women & Child Development Officer of Pune Zilla Parishad.

As of now, there have been 700 applications received by the department. However, there have been technical challenges with the Nari Shakti Doot app, resulting in only 100 applications being submitted through the app. Officials from Pune Zilla Parishad have assured that efforts are underway to resolve these app issues promptly.

In Pune district alone, electoral roll data indicates that there are approximately 43 lakh women aged above 18 years, out of which around 1.3 lakh women are expected to qualify for the Chief Minister’s Majhi Ladki Bahin Scheme. Each taluka is estimated to benefit about 1 lakh women from the scheme. Jamsingh Girase, Zilla Parishad Women and Child Development Officer, has confirmed that necessary preparations have been made to facilitate the smooth implementation of the scheme.
