Dear DR Sharma

In India child Sex Ratio statistics in the 0-6 age group for the last four decades show a dramatic continuous decline, with the sharpest decrease from 1981 onwards.

Medical technology has played a crucial role in reinforcing negative patriarchal systems that demand male heirs. In fact, developments in the technology of sex selection techniques especially Ultrasound have a direct relation to the declining juvenile sex ratio in our country.

About 78,000 female foetuses were aborted after sex determination tests from 1984-1985, according to a Times of India article.

According to PNDT law Prohibition of Sex Selection Act, 1994 as amended in 2003. Stating a Sonologist, Imaging Specialist, Radiologist or Registered Medical Practitioner having Post Graduate degree or diploma or six months training or one year experience in ultra sonography or image scanning.

The Board of Governors considered the matter with regard to incorporation in amendments to The Pre Conception and Pre‐Natal Diagnostic Techniques Prohibition of Sex Selection PC & PNDT Act, 1994 as amended in 2003. There were mainly three reference points suggested by the Honorable High Court of Delhi for clarification which were then forwarded to the Medical Council of India through the Government of India for appropriate suggestions to be suitably incorporated in the amendment to the Act and explicated in the PC‐PNDT rules given as below:

Who should be called as Sonologist?

The following qualified persons may be considered eligible to perform USG for purposes and Indications given under the provisions of the PCPNDT Act / Rules.

I. Radiologist having Post Graduate Qualification in Radiology/ Imaging Sciences, as specified in the schedule I/II/III of the IMC Act of 1956. Modified because of different PG degrees and their nomenclature in different states.

II. Ob / Gyn. having Post Graduate Qualification in Ob./ Gyn., as specified in the schedule I/II/III of the IMC Act of 1956.

III. DNB qualification in Radiology /Obs/Gyn, as equated and as per provisions of the Medical Council of India for equivalence.

IV. MBBS graduate from recognized University in India or any other foreign medical graduate qualification recognized by the Medical Council of India with Six months of Obs/Gyn ultrasound training at any Govt. recognized teaching institute

V. Teachers in Radiology and Obs/Gyn department of medical colleges would be considered as Sonologist and therefore deemed to be registered under the PC & PNDT Act.

I hope this will give the answer of your question

Female feticide is a stigma on Indian culture. In India a strong preference for sons over daughters exists. People realize smaller family sizes with relatively greater number of sons through the use of ultrasonography.

It is shameful act that that more than 10 million female foetuses have been illegally aborted in India. Research published in the Lancet journal based in Canada and written by an Indian doctor stated that 500,000 girls were being lost annually through sex-selective abortions.

If you have registered before 2012 you can continue doing Ultrasound. You can do till 1-1=1=2017/ You have to take a competency examination before 1-1-2017. The directorate of medical education has to conduct this competency examination. If you fail to pass this test you need to undergo further 6 moths training in a government recognized institute and pass the exam.
