Odisha Nai Pahal Scheme 2023
Government of Odisha is going to launch a new Nai Pahal Scheme for newly wed couples. Under this Nai Pahal Yojana, the state govt. will provide wedding kits to newly married couples. The state govt. will start this new initiative to motivate young married couples to adopt proper family planning as part of population control measures.
Because of the population explosion, the government of Odisha is getting ready to launch a new programme in which newlyweds will receive a “wedding kit” as part of population control measures. The “wedding kit” is a part of the Nai Pahal Scheme under the National Health Mission (NHM), which aims to increase awareness of the necessity for young couples to embrace both temporary and long-term methods of family planning.

Objective of the Odisha Nai Pahal Scheme
The “wedding kit” is a part of the NaiPahal Scheme under the National Health Mission (NHM), which aims to increase awareness of the necessity for young couples to embrace both temporary and long-term methods of family planning.
Despite having a low total fertility rate, Odisha is the first State to undertake the campaign, according to NHM State Mission Director Shalini Pandit (TFR). The average number of children a woman would have throughout her lifetime is called the TFR of a population. Odisha’s TFR is 1.8 compared to the national average of two. The responsibility of providing kits to newlywed couples has been delegated to the Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs).
According to the reports, the package may also include a wedding congratulations letter from the Chief Minister in addition to the contact information for local health professionals, ASHA, and ANM. The Health Department also intends to expand family planning counselling and contraceptive services to all operational urban primary health centres, as well as to increase the administration of novel injectable contraceptives to qualified couples.
