    There are many schemes which are applied to institutions to facilitate girls education. Opening girls hostel, Mahila Samkhya Program etc as given on HRD official site. More schemes are vested to SC/ST girls. They are given Rs. 3000 for their education.
    Mid day meal is also one of the scheme which helped freeing girls from more domestic work and bringing them to school.

    One I found beneficial and has invested to is Sukanya Samridhi.
    You can know more about it, basic points are like
    1. It will give highest rate of interest.
    2. Allows highest amount that can be exempted from tax.
    3. One can withdraw money only in two conditions is daughter is going for higher education after attaining 18 or getting married.
    4. At no other point one can withdrew money from account which is good as it ensure more secure future for child. Maximum Rs. 1 lakh and 50,000 can be submitted to this account per year.
