Gurugram: Having shown substantial improvement in the sex ratio, the Gurugram district has shown a slight dip in the sex ratio in 2018. Not wasting any time the Gurugram administration has now formed a three-member panel for the streamlining of the processes.

The team will make sure that there is no further decrease of the female population as compared to male population.

The team will comprise deputy civil surgeon Dr Naval Kishore, Dr Amandeep Chauhan and Shyam Sundar of Red Cross society.

The major activity that will be undertaken by these officials is to ensure that there are no illegal clinics that operate in and around the city.

There is also a focus to ensure better coordination and delegation among the officials and workers. It is important to note that despite stringent measures that have been implemented by public authorities, patients still frequent the illegal clinics to abort the girl child.

For a district that has registered dismal figures in the previous years, this can also be considered as a major boost to the effort of public agencies to improve the situation.

Even though Gurugram is the richest district in Haryana, it is a laggard that this city is not having enough population of women as compared to men despite showing considerable improvement in the sex


The poor state of affairs can be gauged from the fact that in 2014, there were 843 females to 1000 males. While in 2012, there were 841 females to 1,000 males.

From 2014, the district has shown considerable improvement with 875 females to 1,000 males in 2015, 883:1,000 in 2016, 915: 1,000 in 2017, and 903:1,000 in 2018.

The officials along with the Women and Child Welfare Ministry of Haryana Government has roped in the services of more than thousand Anganwadi workers in Gurugram to register the pregnant women in the district.
