The scheme aims to encourage higher education. Those who have availed the Begum Hazrat Mahal scholarship (BHMS) which is funded by Maulana Azad Education Foundation are entitled to avail the benefits of this scheme that would be introduced as a top-up. In the BHMS, meritorious girls belong to minority communities like: Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains and Parsis.

Notably, parents of girls earning Rs 2 lakh per year cannot avail the benefits of the Shaadi Shagun scheme. 

Families of Muslim girls and minority community are always puzzled about their daughter’s marriage and education and most of them save money to spend on daughter’s wedding, not for education purpose.
