Free Study for lone girl child

An interesting move on part of HRD ministry.

"In a bid to correct the male-female sex ratio while promoting population control, the Ministry of Human Resource Development has decided to waive fees and hand scholarships to all girls from single-child families until the post-graduation level."

Not sure of its implications from past expereinces. It has been seen that providing "Anganwadis" where girls who take care of younger sibling can drop their kids before school works to a great extent in increasing school enrollement/attendance. There are several other incentives also. Advocacy group will look into that in detail.
