Status: No such initiative has been launched in the past five years. The promise is also borderline vague: while several government programmes are offering financial support to girls for their education, no initiative supports them throughout their education. In the cases where support does exist throughout a girl’s education, it’s not universal but is dependent on factors such as income, birth, location or academic merit. Plus, these programmes were in place even before May 2019. Similarly, no new initiative has been taken to provide subsidised education loans to girls for their higher education. i ii iii
