This new move made by the Indian Postal Department will significantly improve the status of the women especially in the rural areas. Being in their nascent stage, these schemes will offer great financial help in bringing up the girl child. Although, the scheme will take some time to get started, but it will not be long before these plans will be executed on full scale.

National Award winner Anjali Devasher, member Postal Services Board confirmed that the schemes will be in effect, once they are implemented across all the seven pilot circles. It is about time something like this came up in the patriarchal society.

The Postal Life Insurance plan was first launched in 1884 exclusively for the post office employees. However, today the scheme is available to all the employees of the Central and State governments giving the citizens a better option to provide for their daughters and women.

The number of policies under this new scheme signed up so far has reached a staggering figure of Rs.2.86 crores. The corpus size measures to be Rs. 55,000 crore, and the total sum assured for all policies is Rs. 2,01,373 crores. What these numbers together indicate that every girl child in the country will receive her right to education and health without fear. Facilities like schooling and health care will no longer be a challenge after such policies comes into effect.

These factors will make the Postal Life Insurance Scheme for Girl Child and Women schemes hard to ignore. And, so it’s vital that every rural family should think about getting this profitable insurance plan, after it is launched for the public.
