The Telangana government has introduced the Kalyana Lakshmi Scheme to provide a helping hand to parents facing financial constraints in organizing their daughters’ weddings. This initiative provides up to Rs 1 lakh financial assistance to parents facing economic challenges, focusing on those belonging to the SC, ST, BC, and EBC communities.
If you are a woman on the verge of marriage and a permanent resident of Telangana, you can benefit from the Telangana Kalyana Lakshmi Scheme 2024. Tailored to help women from the SC, ST, BC, and EBC communities, the scheme aims to provide financial assistance to enable them to enter married life without becoming a financial burden on their parents.
Kalyana Lakshmi Scheme
The scheme, which initially offered benefits starting at Rs 50,000, has been gradually increased to Rs 1 lakh over the years. In a recent development, the Telangana government has indicated its intention to provide gold assistance to the girl’s family in addition to the existing Rs 1 lakh. However, this is yet to be officially confirmed.
If you belong to the SC, ST, BC, or EBC categories, you should opt for the Kalyana Lakshmi Scheme or Kalyana Lakshmi Pathakam. On the other hand, if you belong to the minority category, irrespective of caste, you should apply for the Shaadi Mubarak Scheme or avail of Shaadi Mubarak services.
