The scheme is to be launched by the Assam government in 29 districts across the state. Through this scheme, the government seeks to empower women by transferring a minimum amount of Rs.830 each month directly to the bank accounts of the nominated female head of the household. More than 18 lakh beneficiaries have already been selected by the government for this scheme. This number is expected to reach 22 lakh after the inclusion of districts in the Bodoland Territorial Area.
