Education for women is the best way to improve the health, nutrition and economic status of a household that constitute a micro unit of a nation economy. In this context, it can be argued that lack of women education can be an impediment to the country’s economic development. Mr. Narender Modi, Prime Minister of India has given stress on the need of educating and protecting the girl child. Therefore, the present study has been planned with the objectives to develop and expose the media package on “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao” to rural women. Sufficient increase in knowledge regarding BBBP was recorded after exposure for sub- components viz., general information, information about female feticide and abortion, awareness about benefits given under the scheme, provision of award under BBBP.
