Janani Suraksha Yojana was started in the state to promote institutional delivery wherein the pregnant women from rural areas gets Rs 1400.00 as an incentive while motivators get Rs 600.00 as an incentive. State Capital Jai Prakash Hospital had noticed cases of fals claims by motivators, who actually are not even living in the same area. These are WCD/ health workers. They normally come for claim after the women has been discharged with the certificate. Dr D.K. Verma Medical Superintendent while speaking to media accepted that such cases had come in but he added they are now getting lesser and we normally send them back.
