This paperattemptsto understand the functioning of Janani Suraksha Yojana (JSY) in New Delhi. The study involved a primary survey of the JSY beneficiaries in two major districts of Delhi. The results of the survey suggest that the scheme has not been very successful in facilitating institutional delivery in Delhi.The scheme has failed to benefit the poor and the underprivileged groups and its limited benefits have only reached the better off households. The implementation of the scheme also has been uneven and faulty and many beneficiaries face delays in receiving benefits. However, the transition towards the direct benefit transfer (DBT) method of payment shows promise in improving implementation of the scheme.
