Poster competition & signature campaign on “BetiBachao, BetiPadhao”in coordination with PCPNDT Cell

Save girls, save the girl child, is a campaign in India to end the gender-selective abortion of female fetuses, which has skewed the population towards a significant under-representation of girls in some Indian states. The "BetiBachao" campaign is supported by human rights groups, non-governmental organizations, and state and local government in India. Sex-selective abortion, or female feticide, has led to a sharp drop in the ratio of girls born in contrast to boy infants in some states in India. Ultrasound technology has made it possible for pregnant women and their families to learn the gender of a fetus early in a pregnancy. Discrimination against girl infants, for several reasons, has combined with the technology to result in a rise in abortions of fetuses identified as female during ultrasound testing. The trend was first noticed when results of the 1991 national census were released, and it was confirmed to be a worsening problem when results of the 2001 national census were released. The reduction in the female population of certain Indian states continues to worsen, as results of the 2011 national census have shown. BetiBachao activities include large rallies, poster campaigns, wall paintings, billboards, and television commercials and short animations and video films. The BetiBachao campaign is supported by numerous medical organizations in India, including the Indian Medical Association. Government support at the state level has provided funding for BetiBachao publicity activities in particular.

As a mark of respect and support to join hands with the campaign to save & educate girl child, a Poster Making Competition was organized on 12th August 2016 in the university premises. The participants expressed their views and thoughts about the great cause of human rights by drawing, writing slogans and quotes. One could see and feel the enthusiasm that the participants had in their presentation. Many people including faculty members took part in signature campaign to promote the cause and expressed their views.
