Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana (PMMVY), previously Indira Gandhi Matritva Sahyog Yojana (IGMSY), is a maternity benefit program run by the government of India. It was introduced in 2010 and is implemented by the Ministry of Women and Child Development. It is a conditional cash transfer scheme for pregnant and lactating women of 19 years of age or above for the first live birth. It provides a partial wage compensation to women for wage-loss during childbirth and childcare and to provide conditions for safe delivery and good nutrition and feeding practices. In 2013, the scheme was brought under the National Food Security Act, 2013 to implement the provision of cash maternity benefit of ₹6,000  stated in the Act. Presently, the scheme is implemented on a pilot basis in 53 selected districts and proposals are under consideration to scale it up to 200 additional 'high burden districts' in 2015-16.

The scheme, rechristened Maternity benefits programme is set to cover the entire nation. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his 2017 New Year’s eve speech, announced that the scheme will be scaled up to cover 650 districts of the country.The announcement assumes significance as India accounts for 17% of all maternal deaths in the world. The country’s maternal mortality rate is pegged at 130 per 100,000 live births, whereas infant mortality is estimated at 43 per 1,000 live births. Among the primary causes of high maternal and infant mortality are poor nutrition and inadequate medical care during pregnancy and childbirth.

The scheme was launched in 2010 as Indira Gandhi Matritva Sahyog Yojana (IGMSY). It was renamed as Matritva Sahyog Yojana in 2014 and again as Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana (PMMVY) in 2017.

Objectives:

Promoting appropriate practice, care and institutional service utilization during pregnancy, delivery and lactation
Encouraging the women to follow (optimal) nutrition and feeding practices, including early and Exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months; and
Providing cash incentives for improved health and nutrition to pregnant and lactating mothers.

IGMSY provides financial assistance as grant-in-aid to state governments.
 

Eligibility Conditions and Conditionalities

Originally, all pregnant women of 19 years of age and above were eligible for conditional cash transfer benefits of ₹4,000 to paid in three installments, except those who receive paid maternity leave. After the implementation of National Food Security Act the amount has been revised to ₹6,000  to be paid in two installments of ₹3,000 each. The cash transfers under the Scheme are subject to the following conditions:

The first transfer (at the end of second birth / pregnancy trimester) of ₹3,000 requires the mother to:
Register pregnancy at the Anganwadi centre (AWC) within four months of conception
Attend at least one prenatal care session and taking Iron-folic acid tablets and TT (tetanus toxoid injection), and
Attend at least one 3. counseling session at the AWC or healthcare centre.
The second transfer (three months after delivery) of ₹3,000  requires the mother to: Register the birth
Immunize the child with OPV and BCG at birth, at six weeks and at 10 weeks
Attend at least two growth monitoring sessions within three months of delivery
Additionally the scheme requires the mother to:
Exclusively breastfeed for six months and introduce complementary feeding as certified by the mother,
Immunize the child with OPV and DPT
Attend at least two counseling sessions on growth monitoring and infant and child nutrition and feeding between the third and sixth months after delivery.

However, studies suggest that these eligibility conditions and other conditionalities exclude a large number of women from receiving their entitlements.
