  8. 8. EXPECTIONS: -  Our only concern is that all the CTEV cases should be registered or treated and report of them should be submitted to SIHFW ( on monthly basis in the prescribed format. OBSERVATIONS AFTER TWO SEMINARS: -  All the orthopaedic surgeons, are not reporting the CTEV cases.  It is also to mention that in district Fatehabad, Panipat and Palwal no orthopaedic surgeon have been placed, so the CTEV cases of these three districts will report in the neighboring districts, and there no. of CTEV cases will increase.
