Lakhpati Didi Scheme: Empowering Women through Self-Help



The Lakhpati Didi Scheme is a focused initiative aimed at empowering women, particularly those involved in Self Help Groups (SHGs), by helping them achieve economic self-sufficiency. This scheme has enabled numerous women across India to earn over ₹1.0 lakh annually, thus becoming ‘lakhpati,’ a term used in India to denote individuals with substantial earnings.

Key Features of the Lakhpati Didi Scheme

• Economic Empowerment: The scheme targets women in SHGs, providing them with training to generate a sustainable annual income of at least ₹1 lakh.

• Wide Reach: The scheme has surpassed its initial targets, benefiting two to three crore women across India.

• Success of SHGs: The initiative highlights the success and potential of Self Help Groups in fostering women’s financial independence.

• Government Focus: Reflects the government’s commitment to women-led development and empowerment.

Complementary Initiatives

In addition to the Lakhpati Didi Scheme, efforts are being made to improve rural infrastructure:

• Connectivity: Chouhan emphasizes connecting all rural habitations with all-weather roads, significantly progressed under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY).

The Lakhpati Didi Scheme stands as a significant step towards economic empowerment and financial independence for women in India, showcasing the transformative potential of SHGs.
