Suggestions on Proposed Amendments to the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act, 1994

The Public Health and Environmental Justice Initiative responded to a call for public comments by the Expert Committee constituted to examine the proposed amendments to the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act, 1994. 

Vidhi's suggestions focus primarily on the legal inconsistencies and drafting errors in the proposed amendments, which mainly relate to the duties and powers of the authority under the act and the penalties for contravention of the act. Through our suggestions, we attempt to move a step closer to fine-tuning the proposed amendments.
