Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana

Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana

Under-nutrition continues to adversely affect majority of women in India. In India, every third woman is undernourished and every second woman is anemic. An undernourished mother almost inevitably gives birth to a low birth weight baby. When poor nutrition starts in-utero, it extends throughout the life cycle since the changes are largely irreversible. Owing to economic and social distress many women continue to work to earn a living for their family right up to the last days of their pregnancy. Furthermore, they resume working soon after childbirth, even though their bodies might not permit it, thus preventing their bodies from fully recovering on one hand, and also impeding their ability to exclusively breastfeed their young infant in the first six months.

Frequently Asked Questions 

A. Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana (PMMVY)– Scheme Eligibility 

Q.1. Is LMP Date mandatory to be provided to claim benefits under the scheme? 

Ans.1. Yes, the LMP Date, as found in the MCP Card is mandatory to claim the 1st and 2nd instalment. If LMP Date is not provided, the beneficiary is not eligible to claim the 1st and 2nd Instalment and can claim only the 3rd instalment provided she fulfils the conditionality for availing third instalment of the scheme. 

Q.2. How can a beneficiary avail service if she registers herself with the field functionary after 150 days of LMP? 

Ans.2. The beneficiary has to register her pregnancy at the approved health facility within 150 days from the date of LMP which needs to be entered in the MCP Card. Thereafter, she can apply for availing maternity benefit at Anganwadi Centre or to ASHA/ANM within 730 days from the date of LMP. 

Q.3. A beneficiary with LMP date of 4 March 2016 is made ineligible by the system. Why? 

Ans.3. If the LMP date is before 1st April, 2016, the beneficiary is not eligible for availing maternity benefit under PMMVY and therefore, is considered ineligible by the system (PMMMVY- CAS). 

Q.4. LMP date of the beneficiary is 4 January 2017 and the Date of Registration of MCP card is 8 July 2017. Why is the system making the First Instalment Application ineligible?

Q.5. How many Antenatal Check-up (ANC) needs to be done for availing 2nd instalment?

Q.6. Can a beneficiary undergoing ANC and delivery in Private hospital avail the benefit? 

Ans.6. Since only government hospitals have authority to register/ update the MCP Card, beneficiary taking services from private hospitals can not avail the benefit of the scheme as MCP card details are mandatory for claiming any instalment under PMMVY. However, if the requisite conditions are duly certified by a government doctor or officer/ functionary of the Health Department not below the rank of ANM, the beneficiary can claim maternity benefit under PMVVY and the claim should be accepted by the Field Functionary (AWW/ANM/ASHA). 

Q.7. A beneficiary has completed her ANC within 4 months from LMP and has immediately applied for Instalment 2, she becomes ineligible. Why? 

Ans.7. As per the PMMVY Scheme Implementati Guidelines, Instalment 2 can only be claimed after 180 days from LMP date provided ANC has been completed. The date of ANC can be any ti before the Date of Claim of Instalment 2, but the instalment can be claimed only after 180 days from LMP. 

Q.8. Does the ANC have to be 180 days after the LMP Date to claim Instalment 2 under PMMVY?

Q.24. The records rejected by Sanctioning Officer are not visible in correction queue. Why?

Ans.24. If a Sanctioning Officer rejects a case, it will not be visible in the correction queue. It is deemed rejected for the scheme for that particular instalment. If a Sanctioning Officer wants to send a record for correction, S/he will have to select the ‘Correct’ option in the approval queue.
