17% of all maternal deaths in the world occur in India with maternal mortality rate is pegged at 167 per 100,000 live births, whereas infant mortality is estimated at 43 per 1,000 live births. However, these numbers may not sound too high but when comparing to other nations, these are significant. The primary causes of high maternal and infant mortality rate are inadequate medical care during pregnancy and childbirth and poor nutrition. The Rs. 6000 being provided under the scheme also sums up for the vaccination and nutritious food during pregnancy.
