The mayor said, The amount of rupees five lakh will be deposited by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and the interest for the same will be used for girl child education.

The girl child will be selected through the following process:

·         The hospital will record the timings of all the female babies born after December 31 midnight, whosoever will be born in the first hour will be the winner.
