Society in India is pro-male, gender inequalities have persisted since past. The better-half of the society is discriminated all round throughout their life cycle. All most all form of violence is perpetrated on girls and women i.e., sex-selection, foeticide and various gender specific crimes.
As per 2011 census, the child sex ratio has shown a remarkable decline from 976 girls per 1000 boys in 1961 to 914 in 2011.
Discrimination against girls is almost all spread and also against the constitutional equality and other adumbarated guarantees. Termination of female foetusis and pre-natal sex determination despite check and balances are rampant.
Over the years, Union Legislature has enacted special laws in addition to gender-specific provisions in general criminal laws to counter harmful practices against women : P.C. & PNDT Act is one of them. The State of Maharashtra was the pioneer in the country to enact the Maharashtra Regulation of the Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act in 1988, which in turn momentized the Central Legislature to enact on the subject. In recent times the P.C. & PNDT Act is viewed in the larger context of gender equality in India. The Act in hand prohibits the use of pre-conception and pre-natal diagnostic techniques to determine the sex of the unborn child. The Act is aimed to eliminate all forms of discrimination against the girl child and the root causes of son preference, that result in obnoxious and unwanted practices like pre birth sex selection, female foeticide, etc.
