Raj tops sex determination tests in country

Raj tops sex determination tests in country – DNA – English News & Features – City-Jaipur – dnasyndication

The annual report released by the Union ministry of health for 2011-12 has revealed that Rajasthan has
maximum number of cases for violation of Pre Conception and Pre Natal Diagnostic Technique
(PCPNDT) Act in the country.
There have been 192 cases which are ongoing in various places of the state for violation of the Act.
On the other hand, there have been mere four convictions till September 2011 in the state.
This is one of the lowest in the country. Also, there is no other state which has so many cases going for
violation of the Act in the country.
Sources said a separate court established to hear the cases of violation of the PCPNDT Act is yet to
start functioning even though the order for establishing the court
in Jaipur was issued on March 31.
“The notification to create a separate court looking after PCPNDT violation cases was given on March
31 but it is yet to start working as the cases have not been transferred to this court,” said a legal expert.
There is more reason to worry on the implementation of the PCPNDT Act in the state as the data further
reveals that there has been a decrease in the child sex ratio in Rajasthan.
While in 2001 it was 909 per 1,000 males, it dropped to 883 per 1,000 males in 2011.
Experts opine unless convictions are made and culprits are brought to book, the situation will remain grim. A record of pregnant women and newborn babies should be
maintained to identify where the gap lies.
“Until we have a record of pregnant women matched with the number of newborn babies we’ll not be able to find out how many female infants are being killed,” said Pawan
Surana, former chairperson, Rajasthan Commission for Women, who has now been included by the government to monitor the implementation of the PCPNDT Act.

This is a coverage of my struggles to save my daughters.I am thank full to my parents not only for Not killing me ,but also helping me save my daughters... My dream- A big shelter house for women who want to give birth to their daughters and raise them up with dignity and self respect , but have to fight their own families to do so. Will have medical facilities and facilities for legal aid. will have training centers for vocational courses so that they can stand up on their own two feet and stop the dependency on their husbands for finances, A child care center run and managed by the inmates, A kitchen and a vegetable farm run and managed by the inmates. At present only a dream.... But with grace of God will become a reality. God will show the way and means to achieve the dream.
