Haryana:In a major step to check female foeticide and promote ‘Beti Bachao’ campaign in Haryana, the state government will give Rs. one lakh cash award to anyone who provides information regarding sex determination tests or female foeticides to concerned authorities. Once the people involved in this crime are caught red-handed and after verification of information, the person, who provides this information, would immediately be given the cash prize.
For this, a provision of 25 lakh rupees token money has been provided under annual plan 2015-16 and Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has also given his approval. The step has been taken in order to completely put an end to female foeticide, which has led to unbalanced sex-ratio in the state.
