Under Article 15(3), the Constitution of India allows for positive discrimination in favour of women.

The article, under right to equality, states: “Nothing in this article shall prevent the State from making any special provision for women and children.”

In addition, the directive principles of State Policy 39(a) state that“The State shall, in particular, direct its policy towards securing that the citizens, men and women equally, have the right to an adequate means of livelihood.”

The Rashtriya Mahila Kosh (National Credit Fund for Women) was set up in 1993 to make credit available for lower income women in India. More recent programmes initiated by the Government of India include the Mother and Child Tracking System (MCTS), the Indira Gandhi Matritva Sahyog Yojana Conditional Maternity Benefit plan (CMB), and the Rajiv Gandhi Scheme for Empowerment of Adolescent Girls – Sabla.
