Chandigarh: To pay a tribute to the girl child and in order to mark National Girl Child Day which falls on January 24, in a meaningful way, Healing Hospital, Sec 34 has unveiled an initiative - 'Pari Naaz' which is aimed at empowering the girl child.

Drishmeet Singh Buttar, Partner, Healing Hospital who in fact has conceptualised 'Pari Naaz' said, "'Pari Naaz' has been initiated to cherish the birth of a daughter in the family and to make people feel proud to have a girl child at home. Under 'Parinaaz' we will educate parents about the importance of financial planning for the girl child. A team which has been specially trained in this will make parents aware about the GOI's 'Sukanya Samriddhi Account' or Girl Child Prosperity Account. The hospital will do all the processing work related to opening the account in a post office or an authorised commercial bank and even pay an opening amount in the account of Rs 1100 as a 'shagun'."
Dr. Ekawali Gupta , Consultant - Obstetrician & Gynaecologist added, "The idea is to sensitise parents about the need for financial empowerment of the girl child. The parents can continue paying installments according to their budget and this will help them create a corpus which can be used to meet expenses like future education and marriage of the female child."
