PM Kanya Ashirwad Scheme True or Fake
We at gyankunj.org are dedicated to providing only verified correct information to our readers, that’s why we decided to investigate this scheme and find the truth.
The very first thing we did was to visit various official portals of the Indian government and look for such a scheme. We visit the India.gov schemes page and websites of various states also. To our surprise, we found no scheme with this name.
Next, we went to top news portals like aajtak, bhaskar.com and tried to search for PM Kanya aashirwad scheme. Here also, we found nothing at all. Then we went to Facebook and Twitter to find about this scheme. On Twitter, we found a tweet regarding the scheme on the PIB Fact check Twitter handle. This tweet clearly mentioned that no such scheme has been started by the Indian government.
So, clearly, the scheme does not exist officially and is being promoted by some clever minds to collect key information of people. These fraudsters usually set up a page and ask people to enter their Name, Address, Aadhaar number, mobile number, and email ID to fill in the so-called “Application form”. They promote fake schemes like this and get the attention of lots of people and collect their details. Then they sell these details to other fraudsters like hackers.

As we are certain at this point that this so-called scheme is a fake scheme, you should not apply. Besides, you should also be aware of your known people to not fill in the online application form. As mentioned above, filling the form provides the fraud people with your key information which they can utilize to scam you in the future.
The aim of such hoax schemes is to get as much personal information they can, so that can create a nice database of people with details like Name, mobile number, Email, profession, etc. Then they finally sell such databases to hackers who can then compromise your security.
