Background: Janani Suraksha Yojana (JSY) –a new maternity benefit scheme - was launched by Govt. of India in April 2005 with the objective of reducing maternal and neonatal mortality by promoting institutional deliveries by providing cash incentive to beneficiaries. Each year in India, roughly 30 million women experience pregnancy and 27 million have a live birth. Of these, an estimated 1, 36,000 maternal deaths and one million new born deaths occur each year, thus pregnancy-related mortality and morbidity continues to take a huge toll on the lives of Indian women and their new born. Materials and Methods: A non experimental descriptive study was conducted. A total of 60 ANC registered were interviewed using pre designed questionnaire. Results: Majority 34 (55.66%) of antenatal mothers had moderate knowledge regarding Janani Suraksha Yojana, 17 (28.34%) had inadequate knowledge and only 9 (15%) had adequate knowledge regarding JSY. The mean for overall knowledge of antenatal mothers was 15.6 (S.D= 3.4). Conclusion: There is inadequate knowledge regarding JSY among antenatal mothers especially regarding the money packages.
