  1. Officials almost harass the Doctors for small errors. During the so called \’raids\’, they almost make the innocent doctors cry. Officials during inspection never go into the aspect , if sex was declared or not but only on forms, display of PNDT book , gowns, gloves, etc.etc.
    Poor Docs, they dont want to complain and always try to sort out d issues raised.

    Minor mistakes should be pointed out & warned only not to repeat further

  3. Just wondering why this flaw didn\’t come to the minds of ones who drafted this Act at its onset !!!
    Feeling sad about so many of doctors who already have suffered a lot due to these flaws in Act .

  4. It\’s going to be appreciable step, because minor clerical mistakes are landing doctors behind the bars and lots of social and professional harassment despite not being involved in sex selection. It would be a great relief.
