  33. 33. Provided that the person conducting ultrasonography on a pregnant woman shall keep complete record thereof in the clinic in such manner, as may be prescribed, and any deficiency or inaccuracy found therein shall amount to contravention of provisions of section 5 or section 6 unless contrary is proved by the person conducting such ultrasonography;<br />
  34. 34.
  35. 35.
  36. 36.
  37. 37. Why the case is not registered against the doctor who conducted the ultrasound????<br />
  38. 38.
  39. 39.
  40. 40. Why was the fetal ultrasound done??? The kidney bladder scan which has been asked has not been done properly. <br />Fetal ultrasound which has not been asked has been done in full detail. <br />
  41. 41.
  42. 42.
  43. 43. In short<br />There is no form F filled up<br />My name is not in district records also<br />Nobody has asked for fetal ultrasound. What has been asked has not been done <br />My husband has signed an agreement that he will never again ask me or force me to undergo sex determination or sex selective abortionin future. <br />
  44. 44. And yet according to authorities there is no direct /circumstantial evidence of sex determination???????<br />Than what evidence are the authorities looking for??????<br />
  45. 45. “Implementation of PNDT Act is only on papers. Civil Surgeons -cum- District Appropriate Authorities have always soft corner towards owners of ultrasound scan centers , besides this political interference is also main hurdle in the success of court cases. <br />In February 2007 a letter was issued by the Union Health Ministry New Delhi that District Magistrate, will be DAA under PC PNDT Act, but this letter has not been implemented by any State for the reasons best known to everybody.<br /> In Bathinda District PNDT Cell was sent up under the Chairmanship of District Magistrate, Bathinda in the year 2003 and when PNDT Cell was in working condition female birth rate was increased in the district but in the year 2007, black forces compelled the State Govt . Ultimately no meeting of PNDT Cell has been held after 26-11-2007. <br />In some cases DAA after retirement given statement in favor of the doctors against whom complaint was filed by him when he /she was in service. In case GOI is serious to save the Girl Child, she must declare National Emergency on female foeticide , otherwise every body know the result ......” – Dr Sadhu Ram Kusla- Project Officer, PNDT Cell, Bhatinda, Punjab<br />5/19/2011<br />29<br />
  46. 46. RECOMMENDATIONS<br />The implementing authorities should be made accountable for sex ratios of their districts.<br />Awareness should be increased in the general masses regarding the rules of Act.<br />The P.C-P.N.D.T act must be included in the syllabus of medical and related disciplines.<br />The media should be involved in all raids, so that no complaint can be swept under the carpet by the implementing authorities. <br />5/19/2011<br />30<br />
  47. 47. RECOMMENDATIONS<br />The National Inspection and Monitoring Committee should have a regulatory role over the legal actions being initiated against the clinics/establishments raided by them. <br />All the actions taken by the implementing authorities should be accessible to the civil society<br />All cases of P.C-P.N.D.T should be immediately transferred to fast track court. <br />The loopholes in the act should be plugged , which allow the offenders to get away with lighter sentences. <br />5/19/2011<br />31<br />
  48. 48. And AUTHORITIES And JUDICIARY Should Be SENSITIZED And TRAINED So As To Help And Not Harass Any Women Who Wants To Save Her Daughters <br />5/19/2011<br />32<br />
