INDIA - Even fewer girls

According to provisional figures of census of population published March 30, the gender imbalance has worsened considerably in 10 years. India now has 914 girls per 1000 boys under six years, against 927 for 1000 in 2001, at the last count. The Parliamentary Brinda Kara sees three reasons for this alarming decline.

"First, there is no clear government policy to curb the phenomenon. Then there is a cultural preference for boys. Finally, the ban on ultrasound showing the baby's sex is not respected." Families still prefer boys because of the huge expenses associated with marriage girls. Feticide or neglect of the child after birth practices are still widespread in India, says the Daily News & Analysis.
