Despite High Literacy Rate Female Foeticide is on the Rise in Kerala

Increasing incidents of female foeticide in Kerala have come as a surprise to politicians and rights leaders alike, mainly because of the state's high literacy rate.//

"The number of girls in the 0-6 years category is coming down in Kerala and this has happened just because of female feticide and nothing else. The problem is that we are unable to track how this is happening and who are the guilty," said Health Minister P.K. Sreemathy Thursday while speaking at a workshop here on "problems relating to NRI (non-resident Indians) marriages".

"In order to tackle this issue we are meeting women from various sections of society on Sep 28."

The minister was responding to a remark by Girija Vyas, chairperson of the National Commission For Women, that she was surprised to hear from experts that female feticide happens in Kerala too.

Later talking to reporters, Vyas said the present Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PNDT) Act has many loopholes and amendments are being suggested.

"We have come to know that many states do not strictly enforce the PNDT Act and as a result scanning centres are not being checked. The advisory committee of each state has to see that this is implemented in full," said Vyas.
