Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana: An Initiative to Secure Pregnancy

gst suvidha kendra ads banner

The most precious moment in any woman’s life is when she takes her newborn baby in her arms. But giving birth is daunting for many in a country like India due to poor health.

As per data from NFHS, 57.0 per cent of Indian females from 15-49 years are anaemic. 59.1 per cent of adolescent girls are anaemic. 52.2 per cent of women between the age group of 15-49 have anaemia.

Other factors can cause stress in pregnant women such as financial condition. Many women continue to work just after their pregnancy due to their economical situation.

After childbirth, all pregnant women need maximum care and support for a few weeks. The right care and treatment give the best results!

Keeping these factors in mind, the Indian Government started Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana (PMMVY) in India.

When did Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana Start?

PMMVY was launched in 2010. Then, it was known as the Indira Gandhi Matritva Sahyog Yojana. In 2017, it was renamed Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana. PMMVY was implemented by the Ministry of Women and Child Development.


What are the Objectives of PMMVY?

The Indian government has been paying attention to improving maternal health. That’s why the government introduced the Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana.

The main objectives of the Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana are as follows:

  1. To partially compensate the pregnant woman. It helps pregnant women to take rest during pregnancy.
  2. To promote care during pregnancy, delivery, and lactation.
  3. The cash compensation provided to pregnant women encourages them to have better nutrition. It promotes feeding practices in them.

What are the Perks of the Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana?

The pregnant women will be given cash incentives ₹5000 in three instalments. The first instalment’s amount is ₹1000. The rest of the instalments are ₹2000 and ₹2000.

Some important points related to the instalment of cash incentives are

  • On the early listing of the pregnancy at the Anganwadi Centre (AWC), the primary funding will be released. The State/UT will accept this registration.
  • The second instalment will be given after 6 months of pregnancy. For this, you need to submit at least one ante-natal check-up (ANC).
  • The third instalment of ₹2000 will be given after the birth of a child.

The Criteria set by Government Under PMMVY

  • This scheme covers only those pregnancies that occur on 01-01-2017 or after this date.
  • The occurrence of the pregnancy would be estimated with the Last Menstrual Period (LMP) date. It is mentioned in the Mother and Child Protection (MCP) Card.
  • Those women who are working with the State/Central Governments/PSUs and are pregnant. Those who are in the same benefits under any law are also eligible for this scheme.
  • Case of Miscarriage/Stillbirth:
    1. In case of any kind of loss, benefits will be given only once.
    2. A holder can claim the rest of the instalments for future pregnancy.
    3. If a woman has a miscarriage after receiving her first instalment then she will receive her 2nd and 3rd instalments only on the occasion of future pregnancy. In case a woman has a miscarriage after receiving 1st and 2nd instalments then she will be eligible for 3rd instalment only in case of pregnancy.
  • Pregnant and Lactating AWWs/AWHs/ASHA are also eligible for this scheme.
  • Case of Infant Mortality:

Any pregnant woman is eligible for this scheme only once. If the holder has received all the instalments under the PMMV, she can’t claim further benefits in case of infant mortality.

Where You can Register Yourself to get Benefits Under the PMMVY?

Those who are impressed with this scheme need to register first. Here are some points that might be informative regarding this scheme. So, please have a look.

  • The edible woman needs to register themselves under PMKVY at their nearest Anganwadi Centre (AWC).
  • Along with the relevant documents, you need to submit the prescribed application Form 1-A for registration. Provide your and your husband’s Signature at the AWC/approved Health facility. You need to submit your and your husband’s Aadhaar details with written consent. Give your and your husband’s/family member’s mobile number. Your Post Office account/bank details are required.
  • Get the costless Form from AWC. Go to the website of the Ministry of Women and Child Development and download the form.
  • Fill this prescribed form and claim the instalment and submit them at AWC. For future records, obtain the acknowledgement from the Anganwadi Worker.
Benefits Under the PMMVY


  • To claim the first instalment, you need to fill Form 1-A. Add a copy of the MCP Card, Identity Proof (yours and your husband’s). Don’t miss submitting your account details.
  • The applicant should submit Form 1-B after 6 months of their pregnancy to get the 2nd instalment. Add an MCP card photocopy that shows at least one ANC.
  • In case you are claiming 3rd instalment, you need to submit Form 1-C. Add a copy of the child‘s birth registration. Present a photocopy of the MCP card. This will prove that your newborn has completed their first cycle of immunisation.
  • This is very important to know that a holder can’t apply after 730 days of pregnancy. This case is applicable even if you have not claimed for any instalment earlier.
