Madilu Kit is a Karnataka State innovation launched on 1st October, 2007. It is a unique kit which contains 19 items like linen, mosquito net, consumables and other items which are very useful to the newly delivered poor mother and her infant. 50% of the funding for this scheme is by NHM and the remaining 50% is by the State Government.

This Madilu Kit along with free entitlements like JSSK and cash benefits like JSY and Prasoothi Aaraike, will immensely motivate pregnant women of these groups to come and deliver in Government Health Institutions and helps the State to ensure safe deliveries and prevent maternal and infant deaths.
Up to 2013-14, it was provided to BPL, SC and ST mothers who were above 18 years age delivering in a Government health institutions, for 2 live births only. Since 2014-15, this age and para limit has been removed for High Priority Districts, and all deliveries of BPL, SC and ST are eligible for receiving this Madilu Kit.
