PC & PNDT Awareness Campaign at District level

<< Back

Sex ratio in census 2011 shown quite alarming situation in district Dehradun which stands at 902 female against 1000 male, because of various reasons, one has been widely tipped as the main reason sloping the scale in unfavorable manner is the misuse of available diagnostic facilities and illegal abortions.

PC&PNDT Act prohibits sex determination tests and its enforcement is not very effective in many places. In the preceding two years efforts have been on to recognize all the diagnostics clinics having ultrasound facilities in the district. Violations were reported in few ultrasound centers against which severe actions were taken by the district authorities. Strict enforcement of the act involving all the enforcement agencies will be ensured.

Apart from the above initiative communication campaign at district level will be conducted to make service providers and general population aware of PC&PNDT Act.
