The problem with the mindless implementation of the PCPNDT Act

The Surat health officer said - " We have fixed a target to reach 1,000 girls against 1,000 boys."

This is exactly the fear doctors had when the PCPNDT Act was passed. The normal sex ratio at birth is 950 girls to 1000 boys. However, in their over-zealousness to prove that they are working hard, government health officials have started setting mindless "targets" and made a mockery of medical facts ! They will continue barking up the wrong tree, because of their ignorance.
