The prime goal of this scheme is to erase the general perception that the birth of a girl child in the family is the burden on her parents/guardian during her marriage. Every eligible girl in the State gets the benefit of the Scheme irrespective of cast, creed, religion and even financial status of the parents of the girl.
Laadli Laxmi Scheme is State Sponsored Scheme by the Government Of Goa. It was launched as one of the flagship programs of the State Government. This Scheme gives a “gift” of Rs. 1.00 lakh for every Goan girl who is 18-year-old. The amount is given for the purpose of higher education or for entrepreneurship or for marriage or until the age of 40 years whichever is earlier.
In an Indian society, where a girl child is often seen to be a financial burden, this scheme is meant to reduce the financial burden thereby addressing the undesirable tendency of female foeticides, and thus helping to increase female sex ratio in the State. This scheme further intends to ensure that the girl child does not become a burden for the parent or guardian during her marriage. This scheme should not be construed or misunderstood as an encouragement to the practice of giving dowry in any way.
The objective of this scheme are summarized as below:
The following criteria should be fulfilled to avail the benefits under this scheme:

The eligible girl under this scheme shall be given an amount of Rs. 1,00,000/- as financial assistance.
