Janani Suraksha Yojana scheme in Rural Areas Swasthya Vibhag : The Government of India has launched the Janani Surakha Yojana to promote safe motherhood and safe birth-outcomes under the Reproductive & Child Health Project - II that constitutes Part-A of the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM). Under this scheme, a cash incentive of Rs.700/- will be paid to Rural Below-Poverty-Line pregnant women who have their deliveries in Government hospitals and PHCs in the state. The objective of this scheme is to promote institutional deliveries among the rural poor, by assisting them in meeting the expenses in traveling to the hospital town incurred by the pregnant woman and one or two family members who accompany her, loss of wages for the family members accompanying the pregnant woman for up to two to three days, food and incidental costs for the accompanying family members, etc. 

Health Department Parivar Kalyan Vibhag Scheme
The Govt. of Andhra Pradesh has also been implementing since 1999-2000, a cash incentive scheme called the “Sukhibhava”, under which an amount of Rs.300/- is paid to all rural pregnant women having institutional deliveries in government hospitals and PHCs.  In view of the coming into force of the JSY scheme of the Government of India, in addition to the Sukhibhava scheme, both having the same objectives and covering the same group of beneficiaries, the following comprehensive guidelines are given for implementation of both JSY and Sukhibhava schemes in a combined manner.

Guidelines for implementation of Janani Suraksha Yojana & Sukhibhava schemes:

Cash incentive:
Sukhibhava & Janani Suraksha Yojana Incentive Schemes should be implemented in a combined manner (Rs.1000/- cash incentive for Institutional Delivery) from 1st November 2005.
Under the Janani Suraksha Yojana and Sukhibhava schemes put together, a total cash incentive amount of Rs.1000/- (i.e. Rs.700/- from JSY and Rs.300/- from Sukhibhava) will be paid to rural BPL pregnant women who fulfill the revised and combined eligibility guidelines under the two schemes.
This cash incentive should be paid only to those RURAL, BELOW-POVERTY-LINE women who undergo delivery in a Government healthcare institution i.e., Teaching Hospitals, District Head quarter Hospitals, Area Hospitals, Community Health Centers, 30 bedded and other Government Hospitals, and PHCs. 

Eligibility Conditions for JSY & Sukhibhava:

The following are the new guidelines for the combined “JSY + Sukhibhava” schemes:

Only BELOW-POVERTY-LINE women from RURAL AREAS are eligible.
Women AGED 19 YEARS AND ABOVE ONLY are eligible
Women giving birth to FIRST AND SECOND CHILD ONLY are eligible
Pregnant women who delivered twins in 1st delivery and undergoing second delivery are also eligible.
Women coming for delivery (otherwise eligible, i.e., rural, below poverty line, and 19 years or above in age), with only one living child, are also eligible.

Certificate of Eligibility:

Every rural pregnant woman who intends to claim this incentive under the combined scheme (JANANI SUKHIBHAVA) should obtain a certificate regarding their eligibility status in the prescribed proforma signed by both the Gram Sarpanch and the Gram Panchayat Secretary. All ANMs and PHCs have copies of blank certificate forms.

Allocation of Funds & Procedure for Payment:

JSY and Sukhibhava funds are being released (separately under each scheme) by the Commissioner of Family Welfare to all Teaching Hospitals, District Headquarters Hospitals, Area Hospitals, Community Health Centers, Government hospitals (30 beds, etc.) and all PHCs in the state, through the DMHOs of respective districts through a bank draft.
Funds released under the JSY part of the scheme (Rs.700/- per case) should be credited into the “Reproductive and Child Health Project” account. Funds released under “Sukheebhava” scheme (Rs.300/- per case) should be maintained in a separate bank account, which can be named as “Sukheebhava” account as the funds are released from the State Budget. This procedure of maintaining separate account for JSY and Sukhibhava will facilitate submitting Statements of Expenditure (SOEs) and Utilization Certificates (UCs) separately for the two schemes.
The DMHOs are requested to release the funds to all hospitals (Teaching to GH’s) and PHCs under the government under two separate DDs, separately for JSY and Sukhibhava schemes. The total amount of releases should be decided, considering the average number of deliveries conducted in an institution per month, and the number of rural, below-poverty-line cases of 19 years or above of age, and first or second delivery cases. It is roughly estimated that this proportion will roughly be about one-third of the total deliveries taking place in a government hospital located in an urban area. However, in cases of PHCs, the percentage of eligible cases would be close to 60%, and would have to be provided for accordingly.
Both the accounts should be operated under joint signatures of two officers in the government healthcare institution, as follows: (1) Superintendents and Obstetrics / Gynecology Chief or I/c for Teaching, District HQrs and Area Hospitals; (2) CSS or I/c MO & Gynecologist / Maternity I/c in CHCs, and Government Hospitals (30 bedded) ( for CHCs under APVVP or DH control); (3) MO and CHO/PHN/MPHEO in PHCs.
The cash incentive of Rs.1000/- (Rs.700/- under JSY + Rs.300/- under Sukhibhava) should be paid by the MO incharge of the Labour Ward on every working day in Teaching Hospitals, District Hospitals, Area Hospitals, CHCs and 30 bedded GHs.  The MOs of the PHCs should pay the incentive to the women, who have delivered in the Primary Health Centre on the day of delivery during the weekdays without fail.
Since in the PHCs, the MO may not be available on Sundays and holidays,  an amount of Rs.1000/- should be kept as an Imprest Advance with the staff nurse/ANM on duty. Institutional delivery cash incentive of Rs.1000/- will be paid by the Nurse/ANM who assists in the delivery. The advance amount should be recouped as and when necessary.

Accounts & Registers:

The account books for JSY and Sukhibhava incentive payments should be maintained in a single ledger-register (in different accounts in the same ledger) in a prescribed proforma (enclosed) indicating Rs.700/- for JSY & Rs.300/- for Sukhibhava showing Rs.1000/- as a total and obtain the signature of the beneficiary in the register. These ledgers will be printed and supplied by the CFW office to all the hospitals/CHCs/PHCs in a centralized manner.
The surname, name of the woman who has undergone delivery, her age, her educational qualification, husband’s name, husband’s educational qualification, husband’s occupation, the woman’s caste (for the purpose of identification in the villages where door numbers may not exist, or people may not recognize them), door number (if the woman can mention the same), name of the hamlet, name of the village, mandal, and district should be entered in the acquittance register, and the signature of the woman taken in acknowledgement of receipt of the incentive amount of Rs.1000/-.


Surname, name, father’s/husband’s name, and signature of one witness shall be taken for every payment, in the acquittance register. Hospital staff members are not eligible to sign as witnesses. Patients’ attendants, or neighbouring bed’s patients can be requested for this purpose.
Staff members shall not be eligible to sign as witnesses.
