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
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.
• Action against illegal/unregistered diagnostic
facilities and clinics. For this sensitization
of officials of enforcing agencies is proposed.
• Organized awareness and sensitization two work
shop for ultrasound center and law enforcement
agencies in the district @ Rs 50,000/-per work
• Implementation of PNDT act will be reviewed
and all necessary measures will be initiated for
its strict enforcement.
• BCC/IEC campaign will be conducted addressing
both private and public health service
• Orientation workshop/Training will be
organized for ASHA and AWW to aware community on
PC&PNDT acts in each block.
