Assessment of Janani Suraksha Yojana in Nagaur District of Rajasthan

  • Anchal Agarwal
  • Agency : Janani Suraksha Yojana, JSY, NRHM, Institutional Delivery
  • Objective : This study has been done to assess the overall coverage,  particularly  for  Vulnerable  groups (SC/ST/OBC), examine the functioning of its various components  such  as  ANC  registration,  Antenatal  care,Postnatal care and transport services and assess the clients’ perspectives  on  quality  of  care  and  satisfaction  under Janani Suraksha Yojana.
  • Background : Not Available
  • Methodology : This study has been done in six villages of Nagaur which were randomly selected from the list of villages and then 10 women who gave birth in past one year were randomly selected in each village. So, total sample size of the study was 60. The data collection was personal interview with the selected women. Statistical Analysis of the data was done through SPSS. Different indicators under each objective were used to draw conclusions. Different recommendations were given to improve the scenario.
  • Findings : Overall it was seen that BPL families are going for institutional delivery but APL families prefer home deliveries. Functioning of various components of Janani Suraksha Yojana was not satisfactory. Awareness about the ASHA is only 75% and only 70% women are satisfied with   the   quality   of   services   she   provides   and   this percentage was found to be low as ASHA is the main link between community and government so, if people are not satisfied with her work then any programme cannot run with effectiveness. Awareness about the scheme is at satisfactory level but then also people feel that home delivery is more convenient.
  • Recommendations : This study also reflects that women hiring transport to reach health facility for delivery are not getting their money reimbursed on time and higher percentage of them are even not reimbursed so, for this frequent audits and back checks are needed from the providers’ side so that the reimbursement process can be vigilant and proactive. Satisfaction will not achieve anything if appropriate implementation of the scheme at the grass root level is not done properly.
