    Advising the people to not fall prey to such fraud, the women and child development ministry has issued a circular stating the ministry does not host the portal and it has not published any kind of form or information on the website.

    All details of the ministry are published only on www.wcd.nic.in, the circular read.

    An official said a SMS and Whatsapp message is circulating, asking persons with girl children between the ages of 1 to 18 years to apply in this fake portal for availing Rs 10,000.

    "The fake portal has a form which should be filled by the applicants. The portal carries BBBP logo and photograph of Prime Minister Narendra Modi," read the circular.

    The police said they have registered an FIR.

    The Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana programme was launched in January 2015 for the welfare of girl children under the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao programme.
