Govt to amend PC & PNDT Act

The Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act or commonly known as the PC-PNDT Act, despite being a very powerful set of laws meant to prevent female foeticide in the country, has hardly been implemented. Now the Union Health ministry is planning to amend the PC-PNDT Act and make district collectors responsible for implementation rather than the chief medical officers.

But is that really the solution? Activists say it's a token gesture by the health ministry to show they are taking the issue seriously. District collectors, usually overburdened, are hardly experts on medical issues and technology. Activists also say the collector may be vulnerable to pressure from political masters and this might weaken the implementation of the law even more ? What do u say ? debate is on but one thing is that there needs to be stress towards implementation of this law.

Hi,
I am an engineering student about to graduate next summer. After that I am planning to work for an NGO for some time in the regions of Rajasthan/Haryana where this problem of female foeticide and infanticide is gravest. If I find it worthwhile I would take this up as a permanent occupation. Do you have any suggestions for good NGOs that work in this region and domain? Thanks in advance.
