Preface

  Page | 38

 

In Haryana, 23 doctors have been punished under Pre Natal Diagnostic techniques Act (PNDT Act) , whereas 2 persons have been punished under Medical pregnancy Termination Act. Stating this Haryana Health Minister Mrs Geeta Bhukkal said at Chandigarh today that Government is taking effective steps to tackle the Male-Female ratio in the state. She said that Authorities till now sealed around 125 Ultrasound Machines under different Acts. Moreover, registration of 216 Ultrasound centres have been suspended or cancelled in the state. She said that Haryana is the first state in the country ,where first three cases under PNDT Act have been registered in the courts. Mrs Bhukkal said that Govt has involved Village Panchayats, NGO`S and journalists for effective implementation of the Acts.

 

What are the qualifications for doing ultrasound under PNDT act? Are MBBS doctors with one year experience allowed to do Ultrasound scan?  

 

SHOULD THE EDUCATION BE MADE FREE FOR GIRLS UPTO SCHOOL LEVEL TO PREVENT FEMALE FOETICIDE?

anything...they get PAID for thier services...and yes, they are misusing the ultrasound machines to determine the sex of the child. My dear, dont do chamcha giri for these doctors. They are like black spots dey dont go killin girls...yes yaar then only the nation can develop...it should be happen d only in rural area where people thinks that there is gals doesnt need any qualification,...Education is least

 

 

Need to amend PNDT Act to check unlawful practices, says HC

Voicing concerns over the non-effective implementation of the law to prevent pre-natal sex determination tests, the Delhi High Court has suggested that the Central government plug the loopholes in the legislation.

“The absence of clear rules and guidelines spelling out unambiguously the qualification, training and experience required for operating a diagnostic clinic offering ultrasound tests, has resulted in unethical practices... going unchecked,” noted Justice S Muralidhar in his order.

The court said the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act (PNDT Act) should be amended and asked the authorities to conduct a comprehensive survey after consulting the experts in the medical fraternity and education. As a result of the ambiguity in defining the term ‘sonologist’ under the PNDT Act, the growth of diagnostic clinics could not be effectively regulated, the court observed.

 

What every Radiologist should know about PNDT Act

“The Pre-conception and Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act.”

 

“An Act to provide for the prohibition of sex selection, before or after conception, and for regulation of pre-natal diagnostic techniques for the purposes of detecting abnormalities or metabolic disorders or chromosomal abnormalities or certain congenital malformations or sex-linked disorders and for the prevention of their misuse for sex determination leading to female foeticide and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto.”
