Abstract: Women constitute almost half of the population of the world. Education for women is the best way to improve the health, nutrition and economic status of a household that constitute a micro unit of a nation economy. In this context, it can be argued that lack of women education can be an impediment to the country’s economic development. In India, women achieve far less education that of men. As per the Census report 2011, the literacy rate of women is 65.46 per cent and that of men is 82.14 per cent. There has been a sincere effort to improve the education attainment of women by both government and voluntary Organization. The changes in the policies and infrastructural supports on primary, secondary and higher education reflect the initiatives of the Government of India towards women education. Shri Narender Modi, Honorable Prime Minister of India has given stress on the need of educating and protecting the girl child. When the country is heading towards being the superpower if not in the near future, in the long run. Yeah this is the miserable condition of the daughters in some parts of the country where the girls are not treated equal to boys, not allowed to go to the schools beyond primary classes, deprived of all the facilities which their brothers enjoy with extreme liberty and in some cases the girls are not allowed to take birth and they get killed in the womb of their mothers. Keeping in view the above facts the present study was conducted with the following specific objectives:- 1. To know the socio-economic status and personal characteristics of beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries. 2. To evaluate the performance and benefits of the scheme in context of the beneficiaries 3. To assess the impact of BBBP scheme. 4. To identify the constraints as faced by the beneficiaries. 5. Based on constraints, suggest the strategies for improvement in execution of the BBBP scheme.
