The implementation of the Act was slowing rather almost nonexistent. There was further dip in child sex ratio in 2001 census and that leads to amendment of the Act and replaced in 2002 by Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques (Regulation and Prevention of Misuse) Act (The Act). It was effectively implemented in 2003 and amended further in 2011. The Act No 57 was enacted on September 20th 1994, with an aim to prohibit sex determination before birth and leading to female feticide there by to safeguard the girl child.
