Last year, the target of the number of women taking benefits under this scheme was kept at 2 crore, but this year in the interim budget, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has announced to increase this number from 2 crore to 3 crore. Since here an effort is being made to increase the total income of the woman or the family due to the woman to Rs lakh, hence it was named Lakhpati Didi Yojana.

What are Self Help Groups – Small groups consisting mainly of women living in rural areas, come together to save money and give loans to each other. Citing data from the Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Rural Livelihood Mission (DAY-NRLM) released in December 2023, Down to Earth's report states that there are 90 lakh SHGs in India with approximately 100 million women members. This started in some rural areas in the 1970s. Self-Employed Women's Association (SEWA) was the most discussed in Gujarat.

Under Lakhpati Didi Yojana, the annual income of Rs 1 lakh is actually calculated for at least four agricultural seasons or business cycles. And, for those whose average monthly income is more than ten thousand rupees, this calculation has been kept due to the sustainability of the income. This scheme is implemented by the Rural Ministry of the government. Providing business training, delivering goods to the market, providing necessary skills and training are all possible under this scheme.
