In Jan, sex ratio crosses 950 females to 1000 males
Gurugram: There is a good news for the Grurugram district in terms of female sex ratio. The district recorded 950 females to 1000 males in the first month of the year. In a major achievement for Gurugram, the district recorded a sex ratio figure of 900 females to 1000 males in 2017.
For a district that has registered dismal figures in the previous year's, this can be considered as major boost to the effort of public agencies to improve the situation. Even though Gurugram is the richest district in Haryana, it lags in the number of women as compared to men.
The poor state of affairs can be gauged from the fact that in 2014, there were 843 females to 1,000 males. While in 2012, there were 841 females to 1,000 males. From 2014, the district has shown considerable improvement with 875 females to 1000 males in 2015, 883:1000 in 2016 and now 903:1000 in 2017.
