Verification of beneficiaries of the Janani Suraksha Yojana in a dozen panchayats of Alwar (Rajasthan) through RTI route has shown that auxiliary-nurse-midwives had either not paid full money to pregnant women or had not paid them Rs. 400/- for transport. Some cases of auxiliary-nurse-midwives taking back Rs. 1,000/- out of Rs. 1700/- paid have also come to light. Janani Suraksha Yojana is a Central scheme to provide healthcare and financial aid of Rs. 1,700/- for each expecting mother.
