“In order to address the sharp decline in the Child Sex ratio  in the State as revealed by the Census 2011 figures , Rajasthan Government has announced the development of a State Girl Child Policy in May 2012. The State Government constituted a Task force with Department of Women and Child Development as the convening department for the formulation of the Girl Child Policy. On the basis of the announcement, the draft State Girl Child Policy was developed  by the  Government with  inputs from  various Government departments, UN agencies, NGO consultation, etc.. The draft policy is now hosted in the public domain for comments and inputs. This is perhaps first time in the World that such type of policy is coming up. To receive wider inputs  on the Draft State Girl Child Policy , we are putting it on the blogspot for your  valuable feedback. We may find out what can be done by individuals, and other institutions”.
