The trend of decline in the Child Sex Ratio (CSR), defined as number of girls per 1000 of boys between 0-6 years of age, has been unabated since 1961. The decline from 945 in 1991 to 927 in 2001 and further to 918 in 2011 is alarming. The decline in the CSR is a major indicator of women disempowerment. CSR reflects both, pre-birth discrimination manifested through gender biased sex selection, and post birth discrimination against girls. Social construct discriminating against girls on the one hand, easy availability, affordability and subsequent misuse of diagnostic tools on the other hand, have been critical in increasing Sex Selective Elimination of girls leading to low Child Sex Ratio.

Since coordinated and convergent efforts are needed to ensure survival, protection and empowerment of the girl child, Government has announced Beti Bachao Beti Padhao initiative. This will be implemented through a national campaign and focussed multi sectoral action in 100 selected districts low in CSR, covering all States and UTs. This is a joint initiative of Ministry of Women and Child Development, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and Ministry of Human Resource Development.

The objectives of this initiative are: 1) Prevention of gender biased sex selective elimination,
2) Ensuring survival & protection of the girl child,
3) Ensuring education and participation of the girl child.

The scheme is being rolled out shortly.

A YouTube channel on BBBP has been launched recently for all to access. Relevant videos are being uploaded continuously and shared through this platform for easy dissemination. The link for the channel is: .

Further, to engage with the nation, we are launching this Beti Bachao Bati Padhao Group on MyGov platform in order to seek active participation, engagement and whole hearted support in making this initiative of the Government a grand success. We urge you to subscribe to this group and enrich it with your valuable suggestions, feedback and comments.

How can you save the girl child without education? What is the need of the hour is quality education from primary school all the way to the university. It is of paramount importance to build a university campus in every district of HARYANA. These campuses should have medical science, engineering and humanities courses. If you want to seriously bring about a transformation in the state then think of holistic development of a child. The days of incompetence is over we need qualitative changes
