Female foeticide toll in state is 55,053 per year A horrifying number of 55,053 female foetuses are being aborted every year in Maharashtra after sex selection tests.

The aforementioned was disclosed by Anuja Gulati, state coordinator for United Nations Population Fund Agency (UNPFA), at a seminar organised by the PM Shah Foundation and Lek Ladki Abhiyaan in Pune on Saturday. She said that 1,600 female foetuses were aborted everyday in the country following sex selection tests.

Gulati's presentation focused particularly on the child sex ratio (CSR) as she felt it was necessary to understand the gravity of the declining sex ratio in the state. She said that in the 0-6 age group, there were 913 girls in the state per 1,000 boys in 2001, but the number reduced to 883 per 1,000 boys in 2011.
