Female foeticide because of preference for boys over girls for a host of reasons is gigantic in India. According to the estimates of Asian Centre for Human Rights, during 1991 to 2011, a total of 25,49,3,480 girls went missing primarily as a result of sex selection. The child sex ratio (CSR) in India has been consistently falling: from 933 in 1991 census to 927 as per 2001 census to 919 as per 2011 census. The collusion of technology for sex selection is possibly the single most important contributor to the falling sex ratio.
