Those blocks are selected where more than 500 girls (10 to 14 years of age) are either out of school (drop out and never enrolled) and irregular (more than 6 months). 75percent of the targeted girls belong to schedule caste, schedule tribes, minority communities and other backward class communities and 25percent girls from the families who are living below the poverty line. The identified girls are enrolled in the class 6 to 8 according to their age as prescribed in RTE Act 2009 and/ MHRD Guideline.
