  • The women police force will be allocated in several areas to monitor the girl child birth, no underage marriage, girl education and also the proper amenities available to girls in their schools and so on. The authorities should take care of the rules under the scheme and implementations of them in a proper way.

Implementation and Other Interventions

The response is also said to be good enough as well. After this orientation workshop the ministry has decided to implement the scheme in grass root level with the help of local officials.

In Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Haryana several other initiatives have taken by the state government to encourage the scheme. The moves like celebration on the birth of girl child, inspection visits, unregistered USG units sealing, oath taking ceremony, showing birth stats in Guddi Gudda boards and much more.

Objective of the Workshop

The main objective of the workshop is to plan out more deeply regarding the issue of child sex ratio. The rate of child sex ratio is too low before the scheme. Though the rate is recovering but still it is much lower than any developed country. The reason behind conducting this orientation workshop is to share the involvement of various state governments in the journey of the scheme.
