  1. I m sorry to say that this is the real situation in many places, Government should realize that just making a law in relation to PCPNDT act will not solve the problem, rather in its present form it will encourage corruption which is otherwise rampant in India, the present form of PCPNDT act will just make the doctors more fearful in doing ultrasound esp. of patients related to pregnancy or its complications ; this act needs drastic change from its present form so that only those proved guilty are severely punished and the innocents are not harassed in the name of law.
