About the Scheme (BBBP)

  • BBBP Scheme is a Central Sector Scheme with 100% financial assistance from the Centre.
  • BBBP is a comprehensive programme to address the declining Child Sex Ratio (CSR) and related issues of empowerment of women over a life-cycle continuum.

Ministries involved with BBBP:

  • The scheme is being implemented as a tri-ministerial convergent effort of Ministry of Women and Child Development, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare along with Ministry of Human Resource & Development. Hence, statement 3 is incorrect.
  • At the Central level, Ministry of Women and Child Development is the nodal ministry for the programme.
