INTRODUCTION:

BETI BACHAO BETI PADHAO

In a patriarchal society,the gender roles are predefined according to the traditional laws and convectional spirits of the society.And generally such laws were biased against the women hampering the growth of an inclusive and equitable society.It has been a common phenomenon where the birth of a male child is celebrated where as the birth of a female child is generally unwelcomed and seen as bad omen.There have been pre as well as post birth gender inequality in various spheres of life whether it is education or sports or health etc. Women or girl  child had to face evil practices such as  female infanticides, foeticide(abortion of the foetus),child marriage, practice of SATI ,JOUHAR etc .

According to census data, the Child Sex Ratio(CSR)  (0-6 years) in India was 927 girls per 1,000 boys in 2001, which dropped drastically to 918 girls for every 1,000 boys in 2011. A 2012 UNICEF report has ranked India 41st among 195 countries.

The sharp decline as pointed by Census 2011 data is a call for urgent action, as it highlights that the girl child is increasingly being excluded from life itself.Government of India has introduced the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (BBBP) scheme, launched by Prime Minister Narendra D. Modi from Panipat in Haryana (one of the lowest Child Sex Ratio in country which stands at 879 girls per 1,000 boys as against the national child sex ratio of 918 girls per 1000 boys)on 22nd January,2015 for survival, protection & education of the girl child. It aims to address the issue of declining Child Sex Ratio (CSR) through a mass campaign across the country targeted at changing societal mindsets & creating awareness about the criticality of the issue. The Scheme will have focused intervention & multi-sectoral action in 100 districts with low Child Sex Ratio.

 Discrimination against females:

Female foeticide has led to a sharp drop in the ratio of girls born in contrast to boy infants in some states in India. Ultrasound technology has made it possible for pregnant women and their families to learn the gender of a foetus early in a pregnancy. Discrimination against girl infants, for several reasons, has combined with the technology to result in a rise in abortions of foetus identified as female during ultrasonic testing.

The trend was first noticed when results of the 1991 national census were released, and it was confirmed to be a worsening problem when results of the 2001 national census were released. The reduction in the female population of certain Indian states continues to worsen, as results of the 2011 national census have shown. It has been observed that the trend is most pronounced in relatively prosperous regions of India. The dowry system in India is often blamed; the expectation that a large dowry must be provided for daughters in order for them to marry is frequently cited as a major cause for the problem. Pressure for parents to provide large dowries for their daughters is most intense in prosperous states where high standards of living, and modern consumerism, are more prevalent in Indian society.

Details About Scheme

The scheme is being implemented as a tri-ministerial, convergent effort of Union Ministries of Women and Child Development (WCD), Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW) and Human Resource Development (HRD). The Union ‎Ministry of Women and Child Development (WCD) is nodal ministry for programme at the central level.While, the centre has provided initial corpus of 100 crore rupees for it.

The focus of BBBP is on awareness and advocacy campaign, multi-sectoral action enabling girls’ education and effective enforcement of Pre-Conception & Pre Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PC&PNDT) Act.

‎The specific objectives of the scheme are
