National Advisory Council- Draft Recommendations- Comments Invited


20th April, 2012

The decline in the child sex ratio (0-6 years), as reported by the Census of India, from 945 in 1991 to 927 in 2001 and further to 914 females per 1,000 males in 2011 – the lowest since independence – is cause for alarm and urgency.

The situation has worsened, despite the existence of a law banning the use of medical diagnostic technology for sex selection., several cash incentive schemes, and some mass media messages on the issue.

Taking note of this development, the NAC constituted a Working Group of its Members on the subject. The NAC Working Group held three national consultations on different aspects of this issue.
