Descriptive survey method was used in this study to obtain pertinent and precise information. The sample of this study included 120 head teachers and 90 local community members selected by using purposive sampling method from the three districts of Jammu and Kashmir namely Pulwama, Shopian and Anantanag. The self developed questionnaire and an interview schedule was used by the investigator to evaluate the intervention schemes. The results evaluated the effectiveness of different gender intervention schemes and also identify some new interventions made by the local, state and central agencies for promoting gender equity at elementary education level. The results supported that the schemes like NPEGEL, KGBV and Mid day meal seems to be much more acceptable by people where as DPEP and scholarship schemes where moderately accepted by the people. The new interventions identified were: personal guidance to girls, financial support to girls, meeting with parents and providing motivation to girls who are not in schools. These schemes made an enormous contribution for promoting gender equity at elementary education level.
