GPS tracking in portable sonography machines will reduce illegal practice of sex detection: LAADO


Jaipur: Despite being banned the Chinese Ultrasound machines however this illegal practice is still in use. The sources reveal that most of these machines lack GPS tracking system hence they become out of reach for the police.

According to the PC-PNDT Act it is mandatory for registered Sonography machines used by government to have a proper tracking system. However at the same time the portable ones used do not have any tracking system hence making a room for illegal trade of sex detection to flourish. Also its believed that there is a dearth of a proper Technical Cell in the department which could prove helpful to the victims. Rajasthan Patrika’s Media Action Group is running LAADO Campaign in major districts of Rajasthan which highlights different issues responsible for decline in Girl Child.
