Janani Suraksha Yojana

Janani Suraksha Yojana (JSY) is a safe motherhood intervention under the National Health Mission (NHM) being implemented with the objective of reducing maternal and neo-natal mortality by promoting institutional delivery among the poor pregnant women. The Scheme has contributed immensely in increasing the Institutional deliveries among the BPL, ST and SC population. The progress of Scheme has been remarkable since inception and is expected to achieve good results in the years to come.

After Hon’ble Supreme Court’s instructions, 500/- of JSY benefit is being paid 8 to 12 weeks before delivery without any age, parity and place restriction to BPL, SC & ST women and additional benefit (200/- for rural area and 100/- for urban area) are being paid to the beneficiaries before discharge from health facility. All JSY benefits are being made through bearer cheques only since Sept. 2010.

Physical Verification

The JSY payments are made after collecting all relevant documents before delivery by ANM/FHW. The JSY payment vouchers and supporting documents are verified by M.O.–PHC. Thereafter Block Health Officers, District Health Officials carry out cross verification of selected samples on regular basis.


The JSY Scheme is being monitored largely through periodic monitoring visits by Block Health Officials, District Health Officials and State Health Officials.

Grievance Redressal

Any grievance related to JSY i.e. less payment, inordinate delays in making payments etc. are being seriously treated; prompt corrective and preventive actions are being taken by Health Officials. All necessary steps are being taken to achieve desired outcome from this scheme.
