Gujarat govt trains collectors/district officials for Sting operation in sonography clinics



Gandhinagar, 7 May 2012

Gujarat Health Minister Shri Jaynarayan Vyas today opened a website www.betivadhaao.com in a bid to create online facility to receive complains on Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques (Regulation and Prevention of Misuse) Act, 1994 in a two-day work shop on PC and PNDT act related issues, organized by Health department of state government.

The workshop provided training to various district collectors, DDOs, district level health officials for doing sting operation against female foeticide, registering case against culprits, monitoring and inspection of sonography clinics, identifying guilty doctors through analysis of form-F etc.

The Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques (Regulation and Prevention of Misuse) Act, 1994, was enacted and brought into operation from 1st January, 1996, in order to check female foeticide. Rules have also been framed under the Act. The Act prohibits determination and disclosure of the sex of foetus . It also prohibits any advertisements relating to pre-natal determination of sex and prescribes punishment for its contravention. The person who contravenes the provisions of this Act is punishable with imprisonment and fine.

Recently, PNDT Act and Rules have been amended keeping in view the emerging technologies for selection of sex before and after conception and problems faced in the working of implementation of the ACT and certain directions of Hon’ble Supreme Court after a PIL was filed in May, 2000 by CEHAT and Ors, an NGO on slow implementation of the Act. These amendments have come into operation with effect from 14th February, 2003.

    Though late but good move. It’s not easy to locate/contact Government authority by common man.
    There should be a 24 hour hot line to reach authorities & that hot line should alert concerned department immediately.
    We should also be alarmed by increasing number of Suicides. NGO’s,Religious/Spiritual institutions & Government all should work out some thing.
    Other danger for good health for citizen’s are street vending by un-licensed hawkers. Without co-ordination of Local health officials & Police, Vege & Non vagetarian sreet vendors can not flourish. When there were news some time ago that several famous restaurants/dining hall in satelite area have no health license because their building does not have BU permission. How is it possible we can guess.
    Summer heat is not far from us. We will be caught in Hepetitis, Dengu, Etc. Why not stop all illegal hawking on streets in advance?

    It seems Gujarat government is making only half hearted attempts to prevent girl child abortion. True that government has taken several steps, most of them are under the radar and not serious enough to change the ground reality. e.g. as soon as you strictly apply the laws, for that year, child sex ratio should get in range of 50-50. Despite Modi getting serious about it since last 3-4 years, the ratio hasn’t changed. This means, the approach taken to curb illegal abortion is not really serious or successful.

    Ideally government should close some high profile clinics and punish top doctors. This will create terror among medical fraternity interested in doing this shameful act and you will results right away. May be Modi is waiting for elections to get over before taking this step.

    TO,

    SAVE GIRL CHILD— BETI BACHVO

    SUB: COMMENTS/SUGGESTIONS TO CURB FEMALE FETICIDE

    Respected madam/sir

    I Dr Rajni contractor M.D (Gynaec) practinsing as a private Gynecologist since 20 yr, proud to be father of having only single girl child age 17 yr.

    “STUDY REPORT”

     Census 2011 shows decline number of girl in population in matter of great & serious concern to us.
     Latest UN report says 50 million girls are missing from Indian population. As a result of gender discrimination.
    Recently few days back “Thomas Roiter foundations trust law for women, in their survey “most dangerous countries for women in world are

    1 – Afghanistan, 2 – Congo, 3 – Pakistan, 4 – India, 5 – Somalia

    Where the female are not safe before & after birth

     According to British Magazine Lancet approximate 1 crore female feticide done between 1980-2010 in India.

     According to the study done by UNICEF 7000 female child are being killed everyday in India.

     In Rajasthan about 6 to 6.5 lakh feticide have been done in the past five years.

     According to unofficial estimates, nearly 2500 cases of female foeticide or female infanticide take place in the state of Rajasthan everyday and it does seem that an apathetic government is standing by and watching the story of this silent genocide

     In Devda village of Jeslamer district of Rajasthan at present there are only 12 girls in the 25,000 population which shows how significantly lower the female sex ration is in that village.
     In Varacha area Surat district of Gujarat the sex ratio is 780 females per 1000 males.

     In Delhi 5000 females are reported to be lost in the last 6 months.

     In Punjab 275 girl are killed daily before they born
     Following states where female sex ratio at birth & 0-6years are below than expectations
    Are PUNJAB-DELHI-HARIYANA-RAJSTHAN-GUJARAT-MAHARASTRA-ORISSA-HIMACHALPRADESH-UTTARPRADESH-BIHAR.
    Female feticide inhuman barbaric & illegal crime committed by highly educated and respected person of civil society whom some one consider as role model- doctors gynecologist and radiologist in so many states/ UTS .
    Way in which female feticide are done by our colleuge doctor is really painful & disappointed & deeply hurt all of us lot.

    Being gynecologist I know modus operandy of sono/gynecologist it’s very difficult to catch but I have a master action plan (MAP).
    So many medicines openley sell in the market with out doctor’s prescription use for female feticide is a clear cut violation of MTP ACT 2002 and MTP RULE 2003.

    Suggestion regarding

    “BETI BACHVO – SAVE GIRL CHILD”

    (1) Special “PNDT CELL” should be established.

    (2) “CENTRAL TASK FORCE “should be formed under chief secretary of health family welfare dept.

    (3) “ STATE TASK FORCE “ formed under chairmanship of state appropriate authority to monitor and checking of nursing homes & imaging sonography diagnostic centers were sex determination is being done & MTP center.

    (4) “DISTRICT TASK FORCE “under chairmanship of collector include SDM / SP/ CDHO/ BHO as a member.

    (5) Team of intelligence Network and informer (private gynecologist) / NGOs/ asha health worker should be established give secret and confiditional information to state appropriate authority confidentinally.

    (6) NIMC – national inspecting monitoring committee

    SIMC—state inspecting mentoring committee
    Should be formed including very intelligent officers.

    (7) NIMC –should surprise and secret visit to different States/UTs to see state activity regarding prevention of female feticide.

    (8) SIMC should visit city and village to see appropriate authority doing their duties regarding
    PC & PNDT act properly or not.

    (9) NIMC — SIMC should do more string opperation of doctors who are doing such inhuman crime in sting operation including doctor as a team member because doctor knowing smart ness, cleverness, & weakness of doctor very well.

    madam I and my wife Krishna and my only daughter Rajvi work very hard and go to many cities and villages and make public awareness about Beti Bachhoo and save girl child theme in navaratari mela & religious festival since five year .

    NRHM PROGRAM I am working very hard regarding HIV-AIDS / TB program / Thalassaemia / sicklecell anemia / Jannisuraksha independently I do not belong to any orgnation and NGOs.

    I help in adoption of 12-20 new born girl child to infertile couple including 1 is my sister.

    I have prepared Hardcopy of 40 pages How to Implement PC&PNDTact by appropriate authority include various section of PC&PNDTact violated or not
    FORM.-F is filling by doctors properly or not
    How-to do proper &correct PANCHNAMA at time of sealing of sonography Machine.

    madam I have enough technical legal knowledge.

    PNDT section -23 /1 fine of 10000 and 50000 ,3yr impriosment & 5 yr impriosment for first and subsequent offence my suggestion is 3lak and 5 yr impriosment / 5lak & 10 yr imprisoment if possible implement.

    PNDT section 23/2 state medical council shall suspend registration of RMP till the case is dispose onces the charge frame by court.

    About PC&PNDTACT MTPACT I have taken so many lectures to Govt authority& doctors sir sonography was DISSERTATION in my MD exam I know sonography better I make up my mind that not bring sonographi machine.

    I am glad to inform you that I have managed to convince & change the mind set of about 37 Doctors of different cities of Gujarat. I have full proof evidence & accurate details, Name, address and telephone nos. of the patients to whom they might have violate PC & PNDT Act.

    I am happy to inform you that I have received Positive and Satisfied Response from many Doctors and we have even recorded in many nursing home of Gujarat the Case where in a Woman have delivered 3rd Female after delivered 2 female babies earlier.

    In my 20 years of private practice from day ONE to till Today have not brought USG machine
    No one doctorscolleuge- govt authority points a finger towards me regarding female feticide or other illegal activity so my integrity is never question by any one.

    I & my Dr. Friend make a DVD of 25-minits in which “MISSING GIRL” tell her story to doctor & public don’t throw me in a dustbin. I have a full right to live as you are. It’s a really good opportunity to watch & it effect deeply & change the heart & mentality of the so many people & doctors have tears in there eyes & take an oath that they will never involve in such in human crime.

    Female feticide Is a violation of both PC/PNDT /MTP ACT are the two side of same coin.

    A medical expert in India says an estimated 80,000 women die from legal abortions there on an annual basis. The figures provide further evidence that abortion does not became safer if legalized, as unlicensed and unregulated abortion practitioners pose as much of a threat to women’s health as illegal abortions.

    60-80% MTP done in unregistered MTP center by unqualified doctor.

    10-20% maternal mortality are due to MTP complication.

    My MAP will definitely help govt. authority to curb the female feticide & catch the culprit & able to make strong case against culprit in court.

    Approximate 42200 USG machine registered under PC & PNDT act, in India 900 machine were sealed. Only 55 have a conviction so conviction rate is only 5%. It worries all of us.

    Respected madam I have a hard copy of master action plan (MAP) which is highly effective justifiable and viable within the full legal respects of PC& PNDT ACT, MTP ACT to stop female feticide easily without harassing doctor community. In addition, it will save thousands and lakhs of girls who are being killed in the mother’s womb without mercy.

    Madm if we all are not serious about female feticide this time in future it will give rise to dangerous adverse effect on HUMAN DEVLOPMENT INDEX, MMR, IMR,FEMALE CHILD SEX RATIO. And social crime likes RAP, DOWRY DEATH, HONOR KILLING, etc…

    Violation of the PC & PNDT ACT is a clear cut violation of ARTICLE-14, ARTICLE-21of constitution.

    With all my positive spirit, faith & up to best of my knowledge in the field, I am forwarding this information to your capable hands to take this matter further.

    Madam it is my humble request & will be my pleasure if I will be invited to meet & share my views & document to appropriate concern person through your channel.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Yours faithfully,

    its great news to hear the initiative being taken by gujarat govt.

    as an hon.secretsry of the ahmedabad obstetrics & gynaecological society, let me assure the fullest support to every initiative being taken by guj.govt.

    here in our society we have recently formed the monitoring comm. of PNDT act from our senior & well-respected gynecologists, who will monitor the activities of our AOGS members & see to it that the pc-pndt act is being implemented in an earnest manner.

    our aim is to help govt.in tracking down the guilty doctors, who are violating the act with utter disdain…but at the same time preventing the unnecessary harrasement & injustice to absolutely innocent doctors.Witch-hunting by mis-information being provided by some self-interested doctors out of professinal jealousy is also to be kept in mind.

    WE WILL BE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN AS AN ORGANISATION…TO PREVENT FEMALE FOETICIDE…WITH ZERO TOLERENCE…..

    THNKS-DR.HEMANT BHATT

    Hi All,

    I know one doctor who is very famous to do this in Gujarat, there are many complain against him but nothing happen till now and he is doing this crime openly without any fear. May be local authority is supporting him to do this.

    I want to do complain against him at higher level because we already tried before at initial level but nothing happened.

    Can anyone guide me how to do complain against him and where should I write it?

    Regards
    Well wisher
