    Thank you very much...

    Just to inform you that PNDT Act is now amended...Now is is called PCPNDT Act,i.e. Pre-Conceptional and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act...

    Because techno-docs and the parents desirous of begetting only sons had subverted the act...
    This came into existence from 14-2-2003...All india except J and K...
    Perhaps you might be knowing this...

    Thumbs up Gold Card Citizens

    Gold Card Citizens

    Now they have started above scheme..

    Incentivise Girl Child Parenthood- Gold Card Citizens
    Tamper-proof identity card should be issued to each parent of a girl child, carrying the necessary data. The possession of such a card must give the parents of the girl child every economic advantage that the government can bestow.

    Advantages for ‘Girl Child Gold Card’ holders
    1.Eligibility for 50 per cent of allotments of housing plots in housing schemes, telephone and gas connections, petrol pumps, gas agencies, ration shops, industrial plots, municipal permits for shops and other facilities, RTO licenses for auto rickshaws, taxis, bus services and transport vehicles and all types of industrial licensing.

    2.In rural areas, birth of a girl child should entitle the parents to a housing plot — in the joint names of the parents and the daughter.


    Economic Incentives for parents of Girls1.Extra sugar and kerosene rations must be given for a year to a family having a ration card, on the birth of a girl child.

    2.All employees should also be entitled to a special increment on the birth of a girl child, which should continue every year until the child turns 18.

    3.The payment of this financial incentive should be a tax-deductible expenditure for the employer.

    4.Other fiscal incentives could also be explored — such as a special 0.25 per cent rebate on sales tax on the production of the Girl Child Gold Card.

    5.All the allotments and licenses should be in the name of the girl child as owner/allottee, with the parent-guardian as user.

    Campaign against Sex Selective Abortions

     DOWN WITH DISCRIMINATION
     SAY “NO” to FEMALE EXTERMINATION
     Eliminate Inequality, not Women”.
     “Destroy Dowry, not Daughters”.
     Daughters are not for slaughter.
     Say “NO” to Sex Determination
     Say “YES” to Gender Justice
    Thank you GOD
